TIME SPINS AWAY

 Hello Friends! Well I finally finished this layout! I started it in summer of 2011& became so stuck that I had to set it aside ...for what seemed like forever. But better late than never as they say.
The inspiration for the layout was a photo of my husband taken in late 50's. We have less than 10 photos of my husband from childhood through his teens- so the ones we have are very precious to me! It may be a bit grainy... but I still love it!  I seen the spinning top & my mind started thinking...Time Spins Away! And that is so true!
I wanted to use yummy retro look papers. This is a combo of Pink Paislee & Girls Paperie Vintage Travel papers.


 I inked & matted the photo yo make the pic pop off the papers by using a black matt. I really wanted to convey somewhat of a spinning feel.. so I did the letters in the round. They are Tim Holtz grungeboard letters inked with black alcohol ink. After I placed the lettering , I stitched the inner circle, then adhered the lettering.  The corner deco is chip from the Starry Night collection by Rusty Pickle. ( I miss Rusty Pickle.. I always loved their items) It was inked & stickled with  Black Diamond Stickles.


 The clock is made by Jolee's Boutique & was mounted on Grungeboard wings to convey time flying. They were inked with black alcohol ink & stickled with the Black Diamond. I then added it to a Bo Bunny Flower Child chip flower, & inked it with Distress Aged Mahogany & Black Soot.


Again, I used Bo Bunny Flower Child chip board to add some interest to the other side! I scattered some stars about the whole layout to give some detail to those empty areas. 

 I really had a good time with this layout. When I started many months ago I was completely uninspired... then poof ... I knew what I wanted to do & it felt great!
Thanks so much for visiting & taking a peek at my blog! I appreciate it so very much :)
