Outside The Box Art Challenge~Time Chime Angel~


It strikes! One,two

Three, Four,five, Six. Enough,enough, dear watch,

Thy pulse hath beat enough. Now sleep and rest,

Would thou could'st make the time to do so too,

I'll wind thee up no more.

~Ben Jonson~ Thank you Lisa for the fun challenge! When I saw the cute soap box~ I thought of a body! I covered it with old paper, wired parts and pieces of clocks for her legs...the hour and minute hand were attached for arms...a sweet vintage doll head was used. Old folder tabs for wings...
for her heart~ a tiny pocket watch.
I can't wait to see all the other ideas everyone else has come up with!

  1. Ann,
    It's WONDERFUL! I knew you'd do something amazing. I was up till midnight working on mine after returning from PC. What was I thinking with that deadline?! Crazy I know. I just want to delete my post after seeing the wonderful boxes everyone created. I have so much to tell you, last week was a dream. I'll try to call you later. Lisa
    PS Would you consider selling your soapbox?
