CAPTURE THE MOMENT
I think I was even humming "Among my Souvenirs" as I made this (sorry, that's a VERY old song). I chose this little dancer for the Mixed Media Monday challenge. She looks very young and I was (as usual) daydreaming a story about her.
I was thinking about an old lady rummaging through her memories of an earlier life - this picture taken when she was a young dancer in the Corps de Ballet in London, the background is to suggest faded letters, the clock represents the time that has passed, the lace is saved from one of her costumes, the label is from her travelling trunk when the company went on tour, and the little gold locket was a gift from a stage door johnny! Fanciful that's me.
The background script is a scrapbook paper, the image is from a collage sheet by Enchanted Mercantile, the clock stamp is by Cherry Pie, the tag is Paper Artsy and the little heart is a Scrapz charm.
