Now is the Right Time for Stamps and Stencils

I think time must be realy on my mind this month, without realising  a  coincidence I chose 
'Time Flies'
as my theme choice at Stamps and Stencils
for this month.
I hope this scheduled post goes out at the right time.
There are some fantastic takes  made by the girls on the team,  to give us inspiration.
I do hope you will pop over, take a look and read all the details.
We would like  to see clocks/watches/or any other time related element as a main focus.
Also to see some stamps and stencilling as we are a mixed media group.

As you can see I made a journal page, with lots of random stamping, next it was colour washed with Old paper and Shabby Shutters Distress stains. 
 Added texture using modelling paste mixed with some Golden Glass bead gel  and a Tim Holtz clock stencil. . Some  places I rubbed over with gold gilding wax.

I managed to get a reasonable close up photo, where you can see  some of the crackle paste I added to the clock.
The butterfly is a die cut gifted to me by a craft friend. There are also added texture to the page where I have just sprinkled with Frantage embossing powers and let it blow where it wanted to go when I used the heat gun.  The main image is a Stampers Anonymous stamp, fussy cut. Other items came from my stash.

I will also be adding this page to Art Journal Journey,  if I have an internet connection today

Thank you all for stopping by to take a look, The comments you leave me, I realy appreciate.
