I purchased a sheet of designer paper from the Studio Calico's HERE and THERE collection for a specific purpose. It feels so good to use it!
Bicycle paper! The paper is quite busy. I used handbook inserts (Last Call - sale!) and three sheets from the HERE and THERE 6 x 6 pad. I used a sketch from the TOOLBOX Classroom over @ Studio Calico, but the sketch was larger than my photo would allow, so I matted the "sketch" on the chocolate chip!
When I get all the paper down, I have to get out my 12 cup muffin pan and my wood veneer storage box and GO TO TOWN dropping things on the layout! I knew I wanted to use the wood veneer bikes...and oh...look @ those arrows...I can make a bike trail! And I have to add sequins. I now have a sequin is-shoe. I put sequins on everything! ahem.
I decided to do some stitching as well, enhancing the "air waves". LOL. Maybe that's wind. The handbook inserts are thick to pierce and stitch through. I used three strands of black DMC floss. I'm learning more and more about stitching on paper; practice makes perfect!
I love the banner & the hot air balloon and the cut out air waves, I mean wind. Love the colors - turquoise, pumpkin pie, light blue, chocolate chip!
I love that kiddo sitting on the bike. He was almost 10. He learned to ride his motorcycle when he was almost six. Years later, he learned to ride a bicycle with no motor. And I wonder why he likes motorized things. LOL.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a moo'valous day!
