What Time I Am Afraid,

After watching a You Tube
video, I attempted to make a similar background. My idea was then to post said video so you could enjoy and learn also. However, I can't find where I bookmarked it to... now how stupid is that????
Plan #2... I will try to describe how it's done...

Rub your Distress Ink 
pads (I used Vintage Photo and Tumbled Glass) onto your craft mat and mist with water. Lay your page onto the inks picking up a good amount then dry with your heat tool. Repeat. Now using your sponge applicator, apply more full strength ink directly onto the page filling in all the bare areas... here I added Walnut Stain DI also. Using the Mini Time Travel Crafter's Workshop stencil, I dabbed on Navy Ink It Up Ink randomly on the pages. I then stamped script with Archival Coffee over all. Next I tore some pieces of an old dress pattern and applied them with Golden Soft Gel medium.

I cut this Alterations
Tick Tock die with copper sheeting, Kraft cardstock and Bo Bunny Timepiece Dot paper, piecing it together, gluing it down with Tombow Mono Multi glue, then edging and smudging with extra soft charcoal.

I fussy cut some of the
clocks from the Bo Bunny paper, edged them with Walnut Stain DI and applied with the Soft Gel. Did the same with the verse, then sponged more Walnut Stain onto the edges of the pages. Complete!
