Capture Life's Moments

A mixed media page in my journal today.
The base which I used had been created on  my computer.
Next came a spot of random stamping.

Followed with a bit of texture using modelling paste and a Tim Holtz stencil.
The quote was stamped onto tissue then glued into place, covering my first effort that was so feint it could hardly be seen.
The clock is an Alterations die cut, coloured with acrylic paint and rubbed lightly with silver gilding wax. The butterfly was also a die cut with the same colouring.
Last  addition some fussy cut flowers [Tim Holtz stamp].

Now in case you wonder why there are no hands on the clock, 
I am doing my own thing and slowing  time down a little today.
It can be any time I want it to be.

The metal plate reads...... ''Capture life's moments'',   so I did just that, when creating this page.

There is still another week to  to enter the challenge 
where the theme is 'Sending you Flowers'.

Also nearly a week to join the fun at
Art Journal Journey

where the theme is 'Time'.

Thank you for stopping by to seem me today, I always appreciate the comments you leave me.
