ATC - "Old Man Time"

I'm not going to try to go into where I've been since the last post. I'm just going to start out with a new year.... Happy New Year a few weeks late!!!

This ATC was made for a contest which had only one rule - it had to have something to do with "Time."

I titled it "Old Man Time".

I cut a piece of canvas which was painted in metallic yellow, orange, brown, copper, and it had some nice texture to it, to the right size (2.5 x 3.5).

I attached the photo of the train, using gel medium.

I printed a verse from "Time" by Pink Floyd (see below), and used tea to age the paper. I used gel medium to attach it.

I printed a transparency of the old man and positioned him over the lyrics, and attached with eyelets. I tried using gel medium but it wouldn't stay.

I tore out the word "time", colored it red and placed it behind the opening in the watch face. Then attached the watch face as if it were the sun, using jeweler's glue.

These are the words in the verse from "Time":

The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines,
Hanging on in a quiet desperate way is the English way.
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I'd something more to say.

I didn't win the contest, but I'm pleased with this ATC.
