Inspiration – Heidi Swapp Silhouette clock face

Dare to be different – Layout 1

This layout has used the heidi swapp clockface on a plain black 12×12 background to complement the pink, and ensure you can see how transparent the clock is. I’ve used two larger pics of my wonderful kiddiwinks taken in the last month, along with two smaller pictures taken in their first few months. The clock face was just screaming out for the title ‘Time flies’ really. Predictable I know, but effective I’m sure you’ll agree. The names on the photo and the title are Beetle Black Doodlebug doubletake stick on alphabet. The journalling I have made simply from plain white cardstock which I have cut into little pieces and written words on, then layered some of the pieces on top of the clock overlay, and some underneath. They look slightly different colours, and so look dimensional from it, without creating bulk. The chipboard “This is how it is” is from the Urban Lily Title It pack (in the Journalling Junkie Kit) and then I have drawn arrows on the clock face to add to the flow of the text, to include the title as part of the journalling.

You have to think carefully when attaching any form of transparency to your layouts. Try invisi dots for vellum, or here, some careful planning meant I could put sticky tape underneath the elements on top of the clock face (journalling and urban lily square) Or staple it on, or use BIG brads in the centre of the clock face and die cut, or hand cut your own clock hands.

One word of advice though…. make sure you remove the protective film on the clockface BEFORE you stick things onto it….. (yes, I forgot, and now can’t take it off!!)
