Memories...OUAS August 27

Hi there! It's time for a new sketch to play with at Once Upon A Sketch. This month, we ask you to focus on the journaling theme: "Ill never forget". 

Here's the fun sketch we will be playing with:
I scrapped a few photos of Meredith and Griffin :) The two photos were die cut using a Die-namics Square Pierced STAX die then layered on die cut Kraft pieces made using a Die-namics Mini Album Torn Notebook STAX die. For a little added interest, I inked the edges using MFT Sweet Tooth ink.
To begin, I made all of the colored papers using various acrylic paints and the jumbo size Gelli Arts Printing Plate. I trimmed the paper to size, distressed the edges, adhered to a plain piece of Kraft cs then stitched around the perimeter. 
I added lots of texture using the MFT MPD Gears Stencil and fiber paste:
The clocks were stamped using two of the clock faces from MFT MPD Timeless on coordinating die cut pieces made using Die-namics MPD Time Pieces. To add some interest to the plain strips of painted cs, I stamped the gears image from MFT MPD Collage Backgrounds using MFT Sweet Tooth ink:
The text image is from MFT MPD Collage Backgrounds and was stamped using MFT Black Licorice ink:
I'm entering this in Hels Sunday Stamper challenge where the theme is Time.
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you liked my layout. Please be sure to visit the Once Upon A Sketch site to see what the participating DT members have created.
I will be back tomorrow for more to share for the MFT August Teasers Day 4!
Be Sweet ;)

Loving the brick work Mona - background goes with my San Diego idea -- see tomorrow's comment :) Love the sketch! I actually have an oversized canvas for DD and DS, planned for dining room, collage idea of childhoods, they're out of the house now, so collecting thoughts/ideas; obviously your clocks are immensely helpful! Thanks!
