Time Triptych

Time… Moments of Joy… Unlocked

I thought I would look up the definition of Triptych to make sure that it fits this piece….

Triptych - n. A work of art composed of 3 hinged or folding panels.

Time Triptych:

I made this for the Bandanna challenge on the Ranger Yahoo Group for September. I’ve been wanting to try this technique for a while and the challenge was enough to kick my butt into gear!

You can pretty much call this technique Sponge-n-Doodle. The first time I noticed this technique was in the August Technique Junky Newsletter.

Since Tim Holtz (yes I still want to be as creative as he is when I grow up) is the Sr Designer for Ranger and I love his Idea-ology line I thought I would incorporate lots of his hardware and even a piece of his Grungeboard.

So - some close ups:


I don’t really know which is a sprocket and which is a gear but these are my favorite do-dads in his Idea-ology line!

Philosophy Tag (yes I even doodled on this):

Grungeboard (perfect compliment to the Keys):

A few other details - each clock face has Glossy Accents, the hinges were made from a stamped image (Minibook Series) that I crumpled and rubbed with Gold rub-on paste, grunge is covered with black ink and rubbed with the gold paste.

Looks like this post was long winded - if you stuck with me Thanks for the Visit!!!
