TIME

There is a challenge going on right now in the Flying Unicorn Forum to make a layout with your word for the year.  My word is TIME.  How ironic the month is almost over and first now I have found time to make this.....


This is the cover of my Melissa Frances calendar book from the Flying Unicorn store. This is an ongoing project for me. My word is TIME because I don't seem to have enough of it, and I'm hoping if I can find time for everything then there will be balance in my life, "balance" having been my word for the past two years. LOL.

Pardon my sense of humor and showing my age, but there is an expression "get it in gear". That is what this cover represents. Papers are Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante. I layered a frame on top of the paper to showcase the woman's face. The clock-gears is Scrap FX, our featured chippy this week. G45 and Scrap FX are both available in the Flying Unicorn store.


On the paper edges and the clock, I used Ranger Wild Honey Distress Stain. I then covered the clock with Glossy Accents. The gears and hitch fastener are Tim Holtz Ideaology. I added a few bits and bobs from my collection--the jewelry rings and Kaiser copper pearl as an earring. I added scrabble tiles from my stash (scrabble also is my favorite game).
