Time Flies - 7 Dots Studio - June Challenge

Hi ladies!  Up at 7 Dots Studio it's time for a NEW CHALLENGE this month
& the theme this time is TIME FLIES so interpret that in any way you will 
as long as you please play along with us!  There is always a glorious
 big prize for the merit winner!!  See the challenge HERE

I hope you will come on over to have a look at the Design Team's take
 on the challenge & consider playing along with us - you need to use
 a minimum of ONE 7 Dots Studio product on your project as well as
 including the above inspiration circle in your post.  

I used paper from the Destination Unknown Collection, which is really rather 
beautiful by the way.  Lots of lovely dark tones & map type papers. 
 Perfect for the TIME theme.  

I went for a simple composition with my photo in the centre of my page, some 
nice texture on the background, made up of old sticker negative elements, 
gessoed over the top then left to dry overnight with a layer of crackle
 glaze  over the top.  There's also a fine scattering of MICRO MICRO
 beads {yeah they are really TEENY!!}

A small clock we had broke rather timeously (pardon the pun!) so I pulled it apart 
& used the real clock hands under the title & the real plastic parts around
 my date & location stickers.

I also used some Um Wow packaging along with some of their chipboard,
 which I left raw.  The owner of UmWow, DeeDee Catron, is also a 
7 Dots Studio product designer & designed the Destination 
Unknown Collection & the chipboard pieces tie in with it.
