I'm once again joining Art Journal Journey with another timepiece. It's not really in record time, though.
An image of a stopwatch I fussy cut that was left over from when I made my Time altered book (AB) became the starting point for this spread in my experimental AB. It's the same AB I worked in and showed on Tuesday.
For the left side, I began with an old calendar "to do" page. I spritzed some of my handmade shimmering mists through a small doily, but the mists didn't show too well. Next, I sewed a larger doily to the calendar, then sewed the tissue paper so it would fit on the right side of the page.
My AB is too large for my scanner, both in length and width. I tried to capture all areas, but may not have shown this at its best.
One of the things that makes English so hard for others to comprehend is, there is often more than one meaning for a given word, depending upon how it's pronounced. You can interpret this page in REC-ord time or you could re-CORD time depending on how you choose to view it. I've left it open for you to decide, since I tried to use elements that are related to both meanings.
Materials used include an old calendar "to do" page, two doilies, one for the spread, and one as a mask, handmade spray mists, thread, decorative tissue paper, computer generated words, green ink pen, and a magazine image.
I hope you'll join me and lots of other artists this month at Art Journal Journey. And I hope you share how you interpreted "record time," too.
