Still Ticking

Time By Eunice Creswell

One of the fat book page swaps we did on the PWA Yahoo Group last year was a “Time” theme.   This stunning page by Eunice Creswell is totally “Tim” (Tim Holtz inspired).

The list of supplies she used is just as detailed as her art.  She used the Cuttlebug folder “Clockworks” on textured cardstock for her background and distressed it with several Distress Ink colors.  The letter “T” is cut from corrugated cardboard and some of the outer layer has been stripped.  The finishing touches on the “T” are Distress inks and Distress Stickles.  The rest of the letters are die cut chipboard distressed and stamped with various textures.  The dot of the “i” is a sunflower with a mixture of micro beads in the middle.  (All translucent: brown, orange, yellow, red, lettuce and yellow with black and gold opaque's.)

The small distressed tags contain her credits pinned onto the page with assorted fibers and charms completing her page. 

Our Yahoo Group has changed over the years from a daily average of 200+ messages (whew!) to an average of less than 20 a week.  What I find really cool though, is that our activity level in swaps hasn’t changed all that much – which means we are spending less time talking about creating but not less time doing the creating! Yay us!

If you like to swap quality art, then our Yahoo Group might be the place for you, come check us out!
