Time in Miniature

Theme Thursday’s challenge is to create a miniature piece and One Powerful Hour’s challenge is “time”. Time is a favorite theme (and frequent struggle for me) and the restriction of creating small helped to make it feel “doable”.  I created this 3×3 “Forever”. The background paper is handpainted, the next grid image is one of my photographs taken several years ago at the Bronx Botanical Gardens.  I took the  photo of my husband and me also that same day at the gardens.  The “forever” lettering is from a book of USPS “forever” stamps.  Thanks for looking!

  6. Oh, this is beautiful!! love the colour!! Thanks for leaving such a nice comment at my blog. You asked about the swirls on the orange paper, and you are absolutely right, it’s a background swirlstamp from holtz, stampers anonymous. The orange borders are paperfrills. Thanks for asking. Have a wonderful weekend!!

  7. The layering is fantastic with the bright oposing colors and gridwork to soft almust brushlike strokes. Very stunning…a “timeless” piece for sure!

    Thanks for joining us at One Powerful HOur.
