There never seems to be enough time to get everything done. Time is easily our most precious commodity. For this page, I wanted to pay homage to time and how quickly it moves. The vintage ephemera is a reminder of how quickly time passes and age sets in. The cogs and gears look like they are from a clock as the minutes tick by.
TIME Art Journal Page Directions:
For this art journal page, I am working in an altered book as my art journal. Paint both pages with white gesso, but keep it thin so that the text shows through a little.
Layer different pieces of paper from the Tim Holtz French Industrial paper pad with pieces of vintage sheet music on the pages. If vintage sheet music is still too white, spray with Frayed Burlap Distress spray ink.
Adhere the different scraps to the page with gel medium. Brush gel medium over the top of these pages as well to seal them.
Paint sprockets and gears with Ocean paint. Let dry. Adhere at random spots on the page. Add rub-on or stamped letters in white to the page.
Water down Ocean paint and splatter a bit on the page. Take cap off Frayed Burlap spray ink and flick little splats onto the page.
