journal page

Killing two birds with one stone today as the saying goes. This is the first journal page that I`ve ever attempted on the theme of time. It also fits in with the week two challenge here  which is time flies. The journal pages are for a project for one of the ladies over in the Graphicus Guild. She had kindly sent me some paper and some `messed up` pages. I used one of the messed up pages for my first attempt as it seemed less daunting than to work on a completely blank page, so the paper was already coloured a sunny yellow colour. I found this quote from J M Barrie which I felt fitted in with the colour scheme and borrowed my daughters quill pen and dippy ink to write it out. I used a Hero Arts stamp to stamp the grasses along the bottom of the page and embossed with tea dye distress embossing powder to give a textured finish. I used the craft stamper freebie of the clock to stamp in antique linen at the top of the page but it doesn`t really show up in the picture. I used the same stamp for the clock held between the wings which I stamped onto metal and embossed. I`m quite pleased with it for a first attempt. Thanks for looking x Vinny
