A Moment In Time Layout

Mixed media is not my forte so every once in awhile I like to practice. I thought the sketch at Bo Bunny this month was pretty cool with its grid pattern. I have the Beautiful Dreamer kit with lots of clocks so I decided to join the challenge at More Than Words which is to use the word Moment and include a clock. I used pictures of my daughter at Christmas because I took lots and her dress matches the kit. Unfortunately, I didn't have another picture for the center so the tongue sticking out made the cut. However, it's a more realistic representation of that moment in time than the other pictures!

Here is the sketch:

Here is the inspiration picture:
I cut the grid out in my Silhouette on a white paper and the title on black. I dragged the paper through some distress ink to add the purple colour. I stamped some green and black splatters. Then I used a blending tool with black ink to mute the white. I added the two frames at the end for some more contrast and contemplated adding some stitching but I decided not to.
