Mixed Media Monday - The Written Word

It's my turn to host the challenge on Mixed Media Monday and I chose "the written word" as the prompt. I was so inspired by all the "time" pieces during the last challenge. A few people had "the time is now" type submissions, and thinking about that was what inspired this piece. I think Dr. Seuss summed it up perfectly with this rhyme "How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn! How did it get so late so soon?" I must admit I've been feeling that a lot lately, time is just flying by, with never enough time available to do everything I'd like to. So, I made this journal page based on that. The background is done with acrylic paints.
