Hi, There!

The "moment" I saw this challenge at More Than Words, I just knew what I was going to create.  I played the song One Moment In Time, sung by Whitney Houston and watched the music video for the 1984 Olympics - I always cry with that video and music playing - then it was off to the drawing table and here is my finished mixed media art journal pages for this challenge:
More Than Words Challenge - Use the word "Moment" and the creative challenge of using a clock in your design.   This is their board:

And this is my Art Journal Page:

I wanted the computer generated text to seem to float on my pages.
Clock and Wings were fussy cut and painted with distress inks.
The stamps used are from Graphic 45 - Steampunk - for the Wings;
Finnabair - Never Too Late cling stamps and Script cling stamp from Finnabair
Digital image is from Ching-Chou Kuik  - I love her images.  This one is "Time Flies".
I colored it with Copic Markers.  Glitter added to her clock and glitter added to the wings on the other side of the journal page.  I have to have some glitter on my pages:)
The background pages I started with a collage of cut out pieces from Webster's Pages and gessoed over that before adding all my paint mediums.
Distress Paints - Worn Lipstick, Broken China
Distress Ink Aged Mahogany for edging along with Distress Ink Black Soot
Gelatos added for some brightness
Gesso watered down for splatters
Liquid pearls in the digital image hair and here and there
White gel pen for highlights
Shadowing added with Distress Crayons - Mermaid Lagoon and Rasberry.
