A moment in time

I havent scrapped for ages and thought it would be a great idea to just do something that i havent done in a while and just unwind, without any pressure to deliver, the challenge that i am entering is for anything goes challenge  I have had these photos of myself for ages, my son took them one afternoon after i had come home from the shop.  How mnay of us scrappers actually ever scrap ourselves?  not many i'm sure, i know that i am forever scrapping my kids when i feel the need to scrap, but i know that my kids will appreciate a bit of an insight to their mother one day, in the distant future.
I started with two cream cardstock and stamped them with stazon, and then inked over the stazon as this creates a resist, then i gave my two base pages a good ol spritz of glimmer mist, not sure the pictures capture it.  I stamped a few more clocks in chestnut roan colorbox, then layered a lot of flowers and gave them centres of clock works and cobs, and added a few hat pins.

i added phots anchors to my large focal photo and carried that through to my second page by adding the photo anchors to the torn centre dp.  I raised a few of my photos for a bit of dimension aswell and gave everything a good going over with distress ink to age it somewhat, like the subject in the photos, he he.
