Take time to just sit and watch

This fortnight, Artful Times challenge has chosen ‘time’ as a subject for their challenge. Here’s my ATC:

I’ve been reading a number of books, lately, on themes such as happiness, creativity, positive thinking and self development. In ‘100 % positivo’ by Leo Bormans, the author suggests that ‘sitting’ and ‘watching’ are verbs that depict a kind of philosophical attitude and he advises to take the time to both sit and to watch in an active way (of course we’re not talking about being a couch potato and watching television!). Anyway, that’s what inspired me in making this atc, featuring one of my new Artistic Stampers stamps (for I’ve recently won their candy and I couldn’t resist purchasing some extra rubber stamps). The image of the girl was provided by one of the Yahoo-groups I’m a member of.

Stamps used

  • Clock: Artistic Stamper
  • Roman numbers background: Fusion Art Stamps
  • Steampunk elements: Oxford Impressions

    Oh heck Aisling, I was just ready to ditch the computer and go and ‘sit’ and ‘watch’ – the television! Then you put the boot in (in a nice way)
    Love the Roman numerals – must investigate that stamp – and everything you have done here is great – it is a delightful atc.
    Thanks for joining us at Artful Times – Hugs, Neet xx
