I didn't have the watch die but I do have the Clock die and the Steampunk embossing folder, so I used those. I liked the idea this rubber stamp conveyed: "Learn to pause...or nothing worthwhile will catch up to you." Lately I have been taking the time to do the things I enjoy, spend time with friends and family and, generally, just finding the joy in my everyday life. For this reason, I 'shattered' the clock, leaving some of the pieces laying below it. I replaced the missing gears with a picture I took of the sunrise a few years back. If I hadn't taken time to pause that day, I would have missed the beauty all around me. I took many beautiful photos that morning from the road along our place and in our back yard, with the sun glowing through the lilac bushes.
|I stamped the saying (Tim Holtz stamp) on a tag that I had created and rejected for a previous project; then cut it out by hand.|
