The Three Muses Challenge - Time


This week the Three Muses Challenge is Time. Sort of ironic if you think about it. This week in the States everyone is scrambling around getting ready for Thanksgiving which them means the holidays are right around the corner. Which of course means the year is almost over. Where did the time go. It makes me dizzy just thinking about it.

My collage is a painted background scanned. I then used various stamps to create the images. A little fine tuning and here you go.

Katie Scarlett asked me who made the little zetti fairy girl stamp. All marking on the stamp are gone and I honestly don't remember. Sorry, but I am sure their is someone out there who knows. Please leave me a message or email me if you do and I will post it. Thanks!

Elizabeth, your collage is great! It depicts very well the feeling of having too much to do with clocks ticking around. But maybe we should listen more to this little fairy who seems to have all the time in the world. Beautiful work!

I've got to agree with you regarding time flying, Elizabeth. Looking back, I really don't know what happened to the year - it really had wings just like your little girl. Love your background and your interpretation of this challenge. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! Hugs, Terri xoxo
