Dream It - Create It -Tag Friday at A Vintage Journey

Hi everyone! My blog has been quite neglected of late but back today with a project for our Tag Friday post at A Vintage Journey.
I have been struggling with both time and motivation to create recently - which saddens me! Hopefully as the colder months arrive I will find more time and a little creativity.
I started with the background, Seth Apter style - building a few layers - dark then light without worrying too much about what went where as long as some of each layer was showing through. I then took some watercolour card and monoprinted additional layers of colour - this gives the slightly mottled appearance. A little stamping and stencilled circles to finish. All paints were Paper Artsy Chalk paints.
I created a few layers with die cut frames, and some altered patterned paper along with the altered clock face and clock hand - all using Distress paints.
I have no idea where the word stamp came from, but I found it my folder of random stamps and its seemed appropriate for my lacking mojo! I added some camera film and altered some strips of cotton material to finish.
I am sure there will lots of wonderful creations on the Tag Friday post at A Vintage Journey so do head over! 
Thanks for stopping by.
