Time Flies!!

I know it is only September 1st and the VLVS! inspiration board was just posted today but I was on a roll and was totally INSPIRED...  :)

I had some tag bases that I made this weekend with 7 Dots Studios Nature Walk, UWS harlequin stencil and white acrylic paint so I grabbed one and this is what I came up with...

I was inspired by the colors and the steampunk-y-ness of the inspiration board.  I added more layers to the tag with clear and white gesso, watercolors and the waybill/invoice background stamped in archival ink.  Next some black thread, UWS gear mash chip, vintage watch face, Tim Holtz clock hands and a Prima roman numeral.  I stamped Big Ben, fussy cut and covered in glossy accents, used my Dymo for the sentiment and stamped the flock of geese.  Of course the final touch is the lovely May Arts ribbon.

I have been wanting to use the watch face for some time now and this was the perfect project!

Look at those layers of gesso and paint and watercolor...LOVE!!

You have until the end of the month to get linked up.  See you there!!
