Tick Tock...Tick Tock

Ooh, what fun I had making my "Time" chunky pages!  I have to admit, it took me FOREVER to figure out what I was going to do.  Then I got this idea--I wasn't quite sure it was going to work.  When I assembled my prototype, I was so happy with how it turned out!

I had seen these plastic bubble-like containers that are made primarily for party favors.  For example, you can fill the bubble with M&Ms for candy favors.  I decided I wanted to fill the bubble with watch parts.  I had some watch parts laying around but not enough to make seven pages.  So, I called my girlfriend in LA and asked her to go to Jo-Ann's and pick up some Tim Holtz embellishments for me.  It was definitely my lucky day--40% off sale!!  She got me more clock faces, sprocket gears and "spinners" which look just like watch hands! 

I began by placing various watch parts into the bubble for each page.  Next, I pulled out all of my jewelry catalogs and started to cut out pictures of watch faces to use for my backgrounds.  I cut the watch faces down to the size of my chunky pages and adhered the watch images to the backs of the plastic bubbles. 

The top photo shows the front of all seven of my pages.  The middle photo is what the backs look like.  The third photo is a close-up of one of my pages.  Don't you just love how they turned out?


  1. It turned out just great. i will have to attend more parties where they give out favors as i have never seen those before.
