Layout #3 ~ I can ride ~ Kraft + January challenge

Hi crafters,

I'm back with this months Kraft + challenge layout.  

The challenge this month was to use a bike in your layout somewhere, a photo, an embellishment, background paper - anything really.

You can check out the challenge for yourself here

This was perfect timing for me, as I had just taken some photos of Sam riding his 'big boy' bike with no training wheels, all by himself for the first time!

Here is my interpretation of the challenge

I used mostly embellishments from kits I had put together last year. I made up around 50, but still had a few I didn't use.  So I wanted to get them used up (or at least partially used).  Then I pulled the wood veneer bicycle from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio - Hello Summer collection.

The journal card is from an old Blinks of Life kit, which I added the 'current status' sticker to.  Then added my journalling and a couple of other little embellishments up the top.

Finally before I stuck all my layers down I added some white gesso with a palette knife to the background.  Then a few splatters of black and teal colour shine and called the layout done!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest work.
