A Boy's Journey~~~~mixed media altered frame~~~~

Happy Friday everyone!!!  I am having soooo much fun altering these frames...this one is for my youngest son, Macauley...the gears are already spinning for the next one....LOL
I've used several different media for this one....Broken China distress stain accented with Walnut distress stain cover the frames...I luv this stuff!!!! Once again taking advantage of the wonderful grunge shapes by Tim Holtz...again covered with stain and accented with a little black ink.
U TWO and the clock, calender and compass are from the fun Salvage Stickers from Tim.  I love the look of the wooden alpha beads....picked them up at WalMart.
I've add white alpha stickers for....is the destination....under the LIFE ticket.
The gears, crosses and wings are all from Indie Art.
The clock hands are from Graphically Speaking and the word LIFE from Storybook.  I bought the library cards and tickets from US Toys...really inexpensive and easy to alter.  I've crumpled and added walnut stain to both....the card reads.....Author: Heavenly Father, Title:  Your Life, Borrower:  Mcauley, Due Date: ? and the note says...Write your own story!!!! Love, God
This is what the frames look like packaged....i paid $5.97 in the WalMart craft department!

Hope you likey!!

PS.....to all my bloggy buds.....I've tried to leave comments and am unable to for some reason...one of the reasons i don't blog as much as i used to is the frustration with the system....but I sooooo appreciate all of my followers....everyone that stops by....each heartfelt comment....I hope I offer some inspiration to you....thank you all for all the inspiration and support you give me!!
Scrappy Hugs & Love,
