Joy Ride Kind of Day

I really love Crate Paper! It seems like every single collection is better than the next! I'll admit though that I was on the fence about the newest baby collections but...I do indeed have a lot of baby photos that desperately need to be scrapped so I took the plunge and got as part of my Memorable Seasons kit this month.

When I got it in my hands, my wheels started spinning and I quickly realized it's not just for babies!  This is what I created...
Supplies: Crate Paper Little Bo Peep Matilda paper, Clara paper, alpha labels, phrases, mixed brads, White Bazzill Cardstock, Gears Border cutting file, Silhouette CAMEO

Creative Notes:  Apply liberal amount of paint to background paper (I used my finger). Add enough paint so that it only covers about 1/3 of the page, right in the middle.Cut the gears using a die-cut machine and add different backgrounds to the negative spaces, using coordinating pattern paper. Add your photos on top of the paint and over some of the gears. Include a page anchor at the top right of the page for the names and date. Add a title, tracing around the words that blend in with the paint. Top it off with journaling!

Journaling: We never pass up an opportunity to ride bikes on a gorgeous fall day!

Thanks for stopping by today! Stay tuned for some baby layouts using this collection, coming soon!

Good idea with the paint--I am never patient enough for it to dry and make a mess. Good idea to use gear diecuts with bicycles. Thanks for sharing.
