The Timekeeper - End Result!

Well I've finished it at long last!!!

I used whiteboard from PDA Card & Craft (ssbfl) for the base (you usually make boxes with it).

The back also has some stamped decoration/info on and each page will be similar but a bit different as it reflects what is on the front :) I'm leaving that as a surprise for whoever ends up owning one of the pages when the swap is done later in the year.

The grungy chunky book swap organised by Heather is to use T!m's inspirational style and products where possible.........well I don't have a great deal of his stamps so they will have to work hard for me on the rest of the pages and I'm going to have to mix in some other makes that give the same sort of feel using similar sorts of images i.e.
T!m Stamps = script stamp & tickets on the wording......skeleton and scroll edging
Cherry Pie = diamond background
Paperartsy = crown and numbers (numbers were free with Craft Stamper)
Craft Stamper freebie = watch face (I'm not too sure if this was Craft Stamper but it was definitely free so I'm presuming it was!) and the dots (these were cut up from the stamp that had a star in the middle and a border of dots if you remember that one when they were in red rubber)......couldn't see me using it as it was and have found it more usable since doing it!! I think it was a Banana Frog design but I could be wrong!
Home Impressions = tattoo style border
Crafty Individuals = ledger page

The hounds tooth on wording and the exclamation mark are my own.....the little watch dangling from his wrist was a white button that I covered in gold dabber and then swiped black Staz On to catch the high spots.......the crown was fashioned out of some tomato puree tube metal....I added some Anita's 3D dimensional stuff to the watch face and cut the wording by hand from chipboard.....yep I know ......bit of a long winded job but I'm pleased with the result even if I do say so myself!
.....and if I did have some dies and a die cutter I'm sure I would never have just the right size or style of alphabet anyway!!! LOL
.....the page size is 5"x5" and I have to be mindful to leave a little border down the edge where the pages will be bound together later by Heather.

Thanks for looking......only 8 more pages to go!
