Always Remember Time

OK, enough of pink! LOL. Only kidding, if you follow my posts you know I adore working with pink, glitter and lacey things. But today I thought I'd go in a new direction with a patina green and aged brown creation for Studio L3 where the lovely Linda has a Grungy Monday 34 We're cracking up over here challenge. This is based on the amazing technique of  the Crackle Resist technique of Tim Holtz. This was a two week challenge since every one seems to be at CHA, the Craft and Hobby trade show, and yes it is on my bucket list to go there! Maybe some day.....

Well, back to reality with this tag where I sprayed, inked used Distress crackle paints and inks to give a aged background to this tag. I added so many layers I don't even remember all I did! The Art Nouveau paper winged warrior from Graphic45 was fussy cut out next and detailed with copper Liquid Pearls and green Stickles from Ranger. Three little dictionary pieces saying Always, Remember, Time on vellum came next. A beautiful aged cabinet knob and some copper  lace were the final finishing touches.

Hope you will always remember to cherish your time in all you do.
take care, gerri
