Time

Hi everyone,

This week has been a very intense week. It's always hard to say goodbye, but if someone is so young (10 years), it's extra hard and so not fair. This makes me think again about my life and really put things back in perspective. It's all a matter of time. Life consists of time. Fun times, time we spend together, but also difficult times. Fortunately, time also heals. With this canvas I participate with Frilly and Funkie where the challenge is to use a single word as focal point.

It had been a while since I had done a canvas. As basis I used Bazzil Antique Paper and Tissue Wrap. On top I used several stamps and stencils. In order to give more texture I had some fun with modeling paste.







It's became a bit darker than I intended, but it was such an intense week and it reflects how I felt during this week.



Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra

Mooie woorden san en een prachtig project wat je hebt gemaakt. Alle texturen en lagen maken er een mooi geheel van, wat donkerder maakt het ook heel mooi vind ik.
