London Time ~ Journal

This is a commissioned work. I wasn’t sure what colours to use and almost fell for the (easy) temptation of using blue and brown as this is for a guy (and I love that combination), but I decided to try brown and black instead.

I used the weathered clock die by Tim Holtz, using also the inside piece to stamp some London Icons.

Printed out the word Journal, and inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink. I love this font to match the clocks and gears.

I then made a background stripe to add the letters.

For the clock I used Vintage photo and Black Soot distress ink.

For the main background I started with Scattered Straw, then I used the British flag from the ‘Paris To London’ stamp set (by Tim Holtz), and distressed the edges with Vintage Photo and Black Soot.

After adding the gears, I also added a metal charm clip to hold a string of ribbon to serve as a page marker.

The clock hands and that charm clip were secured with Tim Holtz brads (fasteners?).
