The theme of this piece is Time Stand Still, my favourite song by the Canadian band Rush. I still vividly remember the first time I heard this song. I was at University living off campus in a townhouse. It was early in the morning so I was still in bed. We were in the middle of an ice storm and this song came on the radio (battery powered due to power being out). I listened to the words about time standing still and not looking back but wanting to look around me now. The singing sounded familiar, like the group my brother listened to.....aghhhhhh...I can't like a song by the same group my brother likes......I poddled into my roommate Sherri's room and asked to see her copy of the Rush Chronicles 2 disc CD compilation. There is was....Time Stand Still. I started listening to the CDs and found I liked most of the songs.
A few months later when I was back at home, my brother and I were driving somewhere and Rush was playing on the Radio, I started to sing a long and my brother did a double take....."what the bleep" he exclaimed, how do you know the words. I told him the Ice Storm story. That is when I learned that he secretly had been listening to my favourite Group Depeche Mode.
I am posting this just in time before the cut off for the Studio L3 Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2 Challenge #4. Faded Layers found on page 43 of Tim's New Book. (Linda, you rock for leaving comments on all of my entries so far! I understand if I dont get a comment since I am so late this week....a lot of practice went into the background)
I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show your favourite Stamp challenge. Right now that stamp has to be the Hero Arts Watch Gears Stamp
I love how Sarah used metal fencing on her piece, so I used some rusted chicken wire. (On my way to hardware store to find some small square fencing I can rust up to use in future projects)
Lastly, this is going into the Frilly and Funkie Alter It Challenge. I altered the wood frame using Crafty Notions Rusting Powder. I sealed it with Matte Medium. I am probably going to add more metal embellishments to the frame later.
The Before Frame!
Thanks for visiting! I love reading your comments!
