Somewhere in Time...

I am working in Jo's "Take Some Time " AB this month. I decided to do a tribute to the 1980 movie called "Somewhere in Time." A man travels back in time where he falls in love with a beautiful woman.

Jo's book is a very colorful children's book--lots of illustrations and poems. I found a nice spread with pictures of birds around the borders and thought it would be perfect to frame the image I found of the lovers in a kiss. (This image of the lovers was actually painted by Jane Seymour, the actress in the movie). I tore the edges of the image and glued it into the middle of the spread. Next, I took an image of an old clock face and printed it onto two sheets of vellum. I overlayed the vellum on top and again, tore the edges. I finished the spread with a thrift shop find--an antique looking clock pin!

A Fresh View

I have had this image of a beautiful face for years--just never knew what I wanted to do with it. Then when I chose the prompt"When having a fresh view takes you by surprise," I decided to create a window that opens to reveal the image. What I love about it is that at first, you see one thing, but the more you look at her face, you begin to see what the picture is composed of. Surprise!
