More Than Words April Challenge

It's time to reveal for May's challenge for More Than Words 
Word Inspiration - MOMENT
Creative Challenge - CLOCKS

What does the word MOMENT inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired by it.  Please explain in your blog post how the word inspired you if not already obvious.

For this month's CLOCKS creative challenge, we ask that you use a clock or any part of a clock on your project.  You can choose from dials, hands, cogs and gears, pocket chains, pendulums or all of the above.

My design team layout....

'Father & Daughter Moment'

 "This MOMENT was just perfect for this challenge.  As my chipboard title indicates, my page is all about a special "father & daughter moment"

  For the creative challenge, I have used numerous CLOCK images as well as 2 Crafty Chipboard hands/dials."

2 Crafty Chipboard - April DT work

Hi There!
My turn to share my April projects over @ 2 Crafty Chipboard......

First up!

'My Happy Place'

For my first layout "My Happy Place"
This photo was taken in January on my birthday!
It has taken me a while, BUT, I think my family have finally realized that if they just
 look at the camera at first photo when I'm trying to get those family photos, then
 I am happy & I wont keep annoying them for more...  lol!
These are the 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces I have used...

I gave this 'Corner Archer' & a few 'ATC - hearts' a couple of coats of gesso....
I decided that I wanted  'ATC - hearts' to stand out a little more so I inked them black...

 I inked a couple of the 'Groovy flowers' in black also & finished them off with a rhinestone!

'My Happy Place' chipboard title - I gave it a coat of gesso, then added a coat of texture paste & finished it off with a lightl spritz of some pink mist...  
My 2nd creation is another layout......

'Catching Waves'

These are the 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces I have used...

I cut a 'Chain length' into smaller pieces & inked them dark brown...

Added a single coat of gesso to this bird...
I wanted to bring more attention to my two kids sitting on the rocks but didn't want to overpower the photo so! I gave a coat of gesso to this 'Doily Frame' 
I added a coat of gesso.. 
 then a layer of texture paste to the 'Catching Waves' title & finished it off with a blue & teal mists...

I really LOVE the detail to this 'Anchor' & didn't want to lose any of it, SO! I VERY lightly added just a little gesso & inked the edge with black..
