Paper Mixing Bowl June Challenge

I decided to try my hand at this challenge when my friend Frank showed me the site and his gorgeous example. Here is my take:


Here is their "recipe" for this month, a clever idea for a sketch challenge, with suggested "ingredients"!

I added lots of twine, metal embellishments, including a Timmy word band with the quote "know you are loved" wrapped around the photograph... I used screw brads on the photo corners and a steampunk themed clock...word paper, book pages, some whitewashed Timmy tissue tape under the rolled paper bundle in the bottom corner... and bracket...tried to use all the ingredients!

I will give this to my husband for father's day with hidden journaling about how great a dad I think he is, well, most of the time, lol!!
