A Moment In Time

It's been awhile since
I've worked in my art journal. When I pulled it out the other day, and flipped through the pages, I found this background I had done before our trip to Virginia. I remember putting down a lot of Distress Inks... Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves to be sure, but the other is anyones guess. I could see some stamped tissue and stenciled molding paste. That was the point that I quit.

So now, beginning again,
I put down some old lace and a couple layers of distressed papers, one from the Graphic 45 Secret Garden collection. I topped those with a torn piece of old book paper that I stamped with Unity's Insightful Meadows. I wrapped it with some very old ivory hemming lace. I stamped an Artistic Outpost girl onto a scrap of ivory cardstock and fussy cut her then sponged on a bit of Vintage Photo DI. I tucked in a Prime Vintage Trinket timepiece cut in two, then added Prima and Petaloo flowers and leaves along with oak leaves cut with a Martha Stewart punch. Put on an Idea-ology wire pin and a mini paperclip.

The text is 
Authentique's Diction stickers and the pearls are from Queen & Co. The rhinestone on the black Prima flower is by Hero Arts.
