Johnny Cash is TIMELESS

I loved him as a kid and I loved watching him from the steps of the Capitol building in D.C. on our honeymoon and yes, I was very sad when he passed.  But he will always live on, thru his music.  Music that my son got to perform with his school choir last year before Thanksgiving.  And I wasn't the only one in the audience having a great time.  For my son, the Tim Holtz Word Slide says it all...  "encourage your hopes, not your fears"

I combined a couple of challenges for this one... a Closed Facebook group called You've Been Challenged currently have Clocks & Gears (at least one of each) and another Challenge group on Facebook called Jingle Hells is doing a kinda tongue in cheek version of December Daily, crazy daily themes and Day 2 was numbers.  I also used UmWowStudio's December Sketch. And entered this into Unity's Friends with Flair.

on to my list of supplies used:
*Background Paper - DieCutWithAView Tattered Time
*Distressed Purple Paper - DieCutWithAView textures & finishes
*Black Spray Ink - Tattered Angels Chalkboard in Charcoal
*Purple Spray - Tim Holtz Color Wash in Purple Twilight

*Chipboard Arrow - UmWow Studio Layered Arrows partially colored with Copic Marker
*Tim Holtz word slide tied to page using Leather Jewelry rope
*Black Cardstock for TIMELESS - CloseToMyHeart cut on Cricut using Plantin SchoolBook on the Tall Ball Setting (which I then stretched to be twice as tall with the same width) with a single line drawn along each letter using Sakura GellyRoll in StarDust Pen
