Treasured Time - 123 Challenge

Oh how I love me some turquoise!  And if you look enough on the internet, you can find some inspiration.  It is everywhere you turn!  Sometimes, I get inspired by colors.  Other times, by shapes or textures.  This time around, I liked the inspiration at 123 Challenge, which combines 3 different forms of inspiration and I love combining it all into one layout!

I started with a hexagon mask and a clock mask by Tim Holtz.
Next, I started through my scrap paper box and found this yummy polka-dot pp.  It was too crisp and clean for my liking, so I crumpled it up and inked it to give it a little texture.
After inking everything to my liking, I started layering, but felt it was missing something.  I added the smaller clock stamp under the work "time".
A few inked embellies and a title and I was done!
