I've chosen a school photo of son and self, probably taken in 1988, when he was in year 2. I wanted the background to reflect some of the softness of the inspiration piece, so used lengths of ribbon and lace and sequin waste over a lightly patterned paper.
Cogs were die-cut and randomly daubed with Kindy glitz. The background of the clock (from Dusty Attic) was embossed with an embossing folder, and the clock heat embossed.
To complete the layout, I added embossed chipboard corner flourishes and added buttons, (the hands on the clock are also buttons) lacquered wooden stars and fabric flowers.
The two white buttons are from one of son's old school shirts!
