time flies

This is a 'Time Flies' mini book and is my entry today for three challenges:

The Lots To Do challenge blog has a theme of 'time';
The Everybody-Art Challenge blog has a theme of 'everthing but a card'; and
The Arty Girlz Challenge blog has a theme of 'anything but a card'.

I painted two pieces of chipboard with Tim Holtz ~ Distress Crackle Paint: Old Paper and when dry, rubbed Tim Holtz ~ Distress Ink: Mustard Seed into the cracks. I spritzed it with water and rubbed some of the ink off.
The clock is by Magnolia, I stamped it on and embossed with gold embossing powder. The door knob is a Tim Holtz ~ Hitch Fastener and the keyhole is Tim Holtz ~ Grunge board which I inked up with Tim Holtz ~ Adirondack Mixatives: Gold.
The chipboard letters 'TIME' are K & Co ~ Classic K Margo and I just glued them on without tampering in any way! The bird is a K&Co ~ Glitter Rub On: Urban Rhapsody which I rubbed on to a piece of Tim Holtz grunge board and cut out.

The chipboard letters 'flies' are American Crafts ~ Thickers: Gift Box. Again I inked these up with the gold as I did also with the Bazzill chipboard key.
Gold ribbons are from my stash.
Thank you for looking.
having a {me} day
