This week the theme of Simon Says Stamp and Show's weekly challenge is old wives tales. At first I was at a loss and thought I would pass for the week. But, I then decided upon "A stitch in time saves nine." I do believe in taking time to produce quality results, so this saying fits me. I also love to use clock imagery and the time theme in my work.
I tried to represent each part of the saying. The ledger paper was my nod to "save." I love a good play on words. One thing I did to add interest to the page, was weave washers along the edge. I like the texture that this adds. I was inspired to do this after seeing Ingrid Dijkers journals at a private workshop I recently took. Another trick I used on this page was the technique used to color the number. I started with a direct application of alcohol ink, but then added Perfect Pearls before the inks were dry.
I am excited to add this to the book I have been creating from my challenges. It has been a while since I added a page, so I was long overdue.
