So here I am watching Fergie murder Sweet Child of Mine....


...during the Superbowl half time break (Slash, how could you???), and I kind of pulled this journal page together super quickly....I hope it doesn't show that it took me all of 20 minutes!

I did already have the background done, so all I really had to do was Dymo up some words, and stencil that kinda-clockface and stick the spinner on.

This page is inspired by the latest three-part prompt over at the 'A Year In The Life Of An Art Journal' blog:
 
THE PROMPT: Time
THE SONG: Butterflies & Hurricanes by Muse
PRODUCT/TECHNIQUE: Numbers

The line in the song "the time is now" really resonated with me after the last journal page that I did (where I was thinking aloud that you shouldn't wait for a disaster in your life to make big changes for the better, you should start making those positive changes right now!)

So that's what I ran with.

This art journalling lark is really helping me get my head straight....

PS Go Steelers!

I like it that you made it in the break of a game (even in Holland, we've heard of the superbowl!!!) It is a very strong page, your 'action' is visible on it!!! WOW, marvelous!

Glad I missed Fergie then!
Wonderful page....just wish I could get the journal thing - love the work people do but just cant do it myself.

I think my best pages are the ones that only take 20 minutes - this is gorgeous. Love the background and the stencilling. Glad the prompt was inspirational! Thanks for sharing...

Cool page... and Fergie and co. butchered a lot. That was an awful halftime show. I heard some people call it the best ever, but I'm pretty sure watching the Super Bowl isn't their normal thing.
