Time to be thankful

''Capture the moment so it will be last forever.''

Well I don't often share my terrible handwriting so this must be a captive moment for me.
This is the page resides in my  8 x 8 inch journal with its added random stamping
 and extra colour shades.

This is how the page began.
with a shaded pastel background,
 then torn strips of papers
Another clock face, this is the last one of these dies that  was cut and waiting to be used

Now for the hybrid page , with its digital alterations,  after I loaded the above photo into  the computer.
More paint shading, a couple of pointing fingers .

 A big sigh from me , with  the quote added in a more acceptable way for me to be happy about.

Another page for Art Journal Journey,

where Susi's theme for this month is Collage with a twist,
No faces, leaves or wings.

Thank you for taking time to call in to see me,
 your comments are always appreciated.


  1. Lovely page Yvonne, I have a supply of clock faces waiting around, too. Thanks for another gorgeous page for AJJ, hugs, Valerie

  5. Terrific page with a great quote and so good to see you have written it your own hand writing it adds that bit extra to a page I think

    Love Chrissie xx

  9. Lovely page Yvonne! I love the distressed look and feel you have created with the torn papers, colours and clock - beautiful! Wishing you a great weekend! J :-)

  10. That was really clever to weave some paper. What a clever take on collage. It looks great, and I love that old clock die. Its one of my favorites.

  13. Please don't laugh, but when I saw this tiny icon, I thought it was a turkey, the traditional bird associated with our Thanksgiving.

    I like those woven stripes, and of course, the clock face keeps the sentiment real.

  14. Fantastic collage and sentiment Yvonne ( not sure where the terrible writing was as I didn't see any)
    love the vintage colours and patterns.
    Hope your having a lovely weekend.

  16. Love your page(s) - strange how we never like our own handwriting - I wish mine was more like yours! Love the quote you used! Hugs, Chrisx
