Challenge #193 - Time

The theme for this fortnight is....

Time.  It waits for no man.
Use clocks in your work (or just set the alarm to make sure you get it finished in time).  Here's what we've been up to....

I was in Joshua Tree Park this year and standing in the desert which seemed to go on forever, I was struck by the enormity of time.  How it's always been and always will be. So I made a page with that in mind.

Chat Noir here..........  I made two ATCs with clocks in mind, and using an old stamp I bought on a whim (simply had to have it) but have rarely used.

Here's the first

I love the sentiment "an unhurried sense of time is in itself a form of wealth"and so I let it take pride of place on this one.

....and here's my second one: 

....which is really just a celebration of some paper I foundATCs are so versatile that you can make them into anything.  

Rosemary here and I want to show you an art journal background that I've made which perfectly works for this challenge.  I'm showing it without the words that I've put in because well, sometimes an art journal page is very personal and this one is for me but the images of the butterflies should be a hint that this has to do with transformation - ...just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.  I'm realizing that all growth, even painful growth, can lead to something really beautiful.  It just takes TIME.

This was fun - decoupaging, dimension, tissue paper, sparkle, pop dots, watercoloring with Distress inks, pearls, etc.  (in case you were wondering - the metal tag in the center of the watch element says ARTFUL)

What have you made? What has this theme inspired in you?
