Try It On Tuesday - 'Time Flies'

I often think this should be my personal mantra as I am more often than not rushing around chasing my tail and  playing catch up. The downside of our busy modern lives is that we often forget to live in the moment. So this fortnight's Try It On Tuesday theme is one close to my heart and I wanted to try and make something  a bit different for my DT project - and for once I made time to do just that!!!

I am a sucker for buying the latest bits and bobs and never getting round to using them, so there are a fair few art parts languishing in my craft room. 

This piece is a mixture of art parts, grungeboard die cuts, various cog die cuts (because I can't decide which one to buy I buy them in bundles ready cut from ebay. That way I get all the styles whereas I couldn't justify buying all the different dies .... could I?).
I have then treated them to a bit of Distress EP, paint, ink and metallic rub ons. I had great fun putting all this together and even found a place for one of my mini bottles.



 
 
Our sponsor this month is Really Reasonable Ribbons who are offering a $15 gift voucher for our February challenges winner.
So come on, let's see what you can make with this theme - I am anticipating it will be a very popular one! You can enter any project as long as it follows the theme but please remember to link to only 5 challenges in total if you wish to be considered for Top 5 and the Prize Draw at Try It On Tuesday.

I think that is something we are all guilty of!! However, now that you've cracked them open, how fabulous is what you've made! I love the colours too, really makes you feel spring may be on the way (if only!)

It is amazing! I love all the bits and how you've created it all. Grand work! I, too have art parts cos they looked fab but haven't really made much with them! Take care Zo xx

Look at it this way, Cindy - if you hadn't amassed those bits and bobs over time you might not have had everything you needed for this fab piece.
