Golden Moments

“Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.” from the film “Star Trek: Generation

That was an abnormal source for me but could not go past it today. Moments should be cherished as golden opportunities. Tomorrow is too often an option that not every gets a chance at.

For everyone who asks, how did you do that, I will start trying to explain the different parts that play a part of the pieces we post.

The photo is courtesy of Beachys Cape Cod as part of a challenge. This photo of young girls from the 30s got me to wondering what dreams did they have for the future? How much did a world war interrupt their plans and where did they finally end up?

Details : Back board is a recycled hard cover to a damaged book. Printed the picture on to a scrap of canvas that was already roughed up and the splattered paint only added to the vintage flavour. Music paper for the back ground linking the photo to the other features. A lace doily was used to frame a printed velum clock face and sticker clock face. Xyron ribbon to get it stick in place as we shaped it, love that xyron. Delish chipboard letters for the title sponge painted to give them a soft texture finish. Metal findings as the finishing touch to frame it all up.

“Every moment is a golden one for those who have the vision to recognize it as such.” Henry Miller.
