Time stood still…

some new to me gold square paper helped inspire these gesso journal pages for Art Journal Journey’s TIME challenge along with a scrap of a Gustav Klimt napkin (my other AJJ entries this month are #30 & # 57)…

Magpie's Nest Patty Szymkowicz Time is golden

assorted black rubons helped add the final touches…

time standing still is an interesting concept…

especially when most everyone you speak to says how quickly time seems to pass...

  14. Love the gold. And rub ons are a favorite. They disappeared for awhile…. but seem to have come back to the stores! Time flies when you are having fun. Otherwise it drags. You should do a book on all those time sayings!!!

  15. Klimt’s paintings are a favorite of mine, and your take on this is wonderful. I agree that time stands still when you are first in love.

    The layers you created make this an exceptional piece. Of course, the gold and the rub-ons add to the overall artiness of the spread. Lovely on all counts.

  28. Time is certainly passing by far too quickly. I have a conspiracy theory that someone, somewhere, is meddling with time and speeding it up!!!!!
    I can definitely see the influence of Klimt in your beautiful pages. The gold against the Gesso is a gorgeous combination.

  31. I was just reading a Cloth Paper Scissors article on gold (she was using leaf) and then thinking about your thyme and thinking I need to dig out my gold and use it a bit more. It’s so pretty, especially with the black and white and it looks great with all the elements of this layout. You are the layer queen!
