I adore clocks and watches and all things time-related, perhaps because I’m constantly trying to hold back time!

I created two circular layers from the centre of the same Chinese print I used in The Green, Green Grass of Home, one in Multiply mode and one in Normal. I used a clock face with roman numerals by Rachael Towne from Flickr in Normal mode at 67% and sandwiched it between the Chinese circles. The background is the entire Chinese print blended in Multiply mode with texture 2LO – Crackle 11 from 2 Lil’ Owls. I topped it all off with a layer of green (#5b5f48) in Multiply mode.

I created this collage with a postcard of actress Pauline Chase [1885-1962] from my theatre collection. When I was in my early teens, if not younger, I was obsessed with spending my pocket money on vintage theatrical postcards and used to spend hours browsing round a magical second-hand bookshop on Richmond Hill in Richmond, Surrey, where I was brought up. The old gentleman who ran the shop was quite fierce or, perhaps, simply wary of children like me ruining his stock. For some reason, he had more postcards of Miss Chase than anyone else.

Pauline Chase was actually an American, born in Washington DC in 1885, but having begun as a child actress in her homeland, she ultimately settled in the UK. If she is known at all these days, it would be for her association with Peter Pan, in which she started in a lesser role for the first production in 1904, graduating to the title role in 1906 when that year’s Peter, Cissie Loftus, was taken ill. J M Barrie was so taken with her performance that she then played Peter until she retired from the stage in 1913. A contemporary review (Daily Mail) for the 1907 productions states that ‘Miss Pauline Chase has improved greatly in her acting…’!

The French script background is from 2 Lil’ Owls.
