It's that time again at More Than Words, the reveal of another new challenge! This May it's about clocks and moments!! That's right TIME! And here is my interpretation!
I can just imagine all the awesome projects we'll see this month with this challenge! A few additional photos. . .
Because the photo is old I wanted to carry that into my page so I used a resin lantern and some chipboard from Dusty Attic and went to work. I painted the lantern with Prima Bloom Spray in Vintage Gold and used Get Glowing Inklingz from Shimmerz for the yellow glow. I went over the piece with Artisan Powder to make it look more worn. This powder is fabulous!
I used a TCW stencil, some moulding paste and more gold mist and did some masking on my background. I then used a sentiment stamp and went around the page. The metal clocks are from Prima's Vintage Trinkets line. I added the paper clocks by fussy cutting my Maya Design papers. I used Vintage Autumn for this layout.
My title speaks for itself perfectly. I believe that time is short and we need to really step back and reassess our priorities. Do what is important, have fun, live for the now.
The little boy is my dad with his father. My grandpa died three weeks before the end of WWII. Shot down by a sniper's bullet my dad was left without his father at the age of twelve. I lost my father to pancreatic cancer. It was the first day of his retirement when he got the news. Live for the now!
