Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge – Technique #9: Time

pocket watch 2 w border.jpg

This week’s Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge at Linda’s Studio L3 involves the use of Tim’s pocket watch and the technique he outlines on page 35 of his CofC2 book. This week’s challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

I opted not to get terribly creative with this one. I will use it in a project, maybe even a scrapbook page, but will go ahead and post the watch project itself at this point. This project begins with an empty watch case.

This is a subject that has been on my mind a lot lately—with the high school graduation of my two granddaughters and some other life happenings, I’ve just become more acutely aware of the passing of time, and of the accompanying memories.

This is gorgeous, Barbara, and such a poignant piece, given your thoughts about the passage of time. It's beautiful on its own, and I'm sure whatever design you decide to work it into will be amazing!
