Hi there! I’m so excited to share this layout with you. It is of my son and his “big boy” bike. It is featured along with 11 other of my projects in the August/September issue of Ready-Set-Create! You can get your copy here. As for recycling I saved some puzzle pieces from one of those 3-D puzzles that were all the rage a few years ago. All of the “gear gadgets” are leftover from a puzzle. To make some of them silver I pressed them into a clear embossing ink pad then sprinkled them with silver embossing powder and attached them with a screw top eyelet. How Fun! To make the journal box transparency I used a journal brush by N.B.K. Designs and typed my journaling (Bulky Refuse font) in it then printed it on ink jet transparency film. I cut it out, flipped it over and painted it with acrylic paint them placed it on the layout while it was wet so the paint would “glue” it down so I wouldn’t have adhesive showing. The awesome stamps I used were by Technique Tuesday except for the ticket which was Inkadinkado. Paper is DCWV. Thanks for looking!
