I started by choosing a very neutral background paper. For the foreground, I took one sheet of Earth Wind Fire 101 and cut it at about 6.5". With the red side up, I adhered it across the top of the page.
I took the remaining piece, flipped it over so the patterned side showed, and positioned it on the left side of the page.
I trimmed a banner out of the Cut Apart page and added it to create a strong horizontal line.
Here is a close up so you can see how I folded under the ends of the banner to shorten it and give it some dimension. I love dimension!
I used Barn Board PowderPuff Chalking Ink and a stencil to add a subtle detail before positioning my photos.
The perfect embellishment for a layout about trains is pretty much anything with gears! I heat embossed these chipboard pieces from Want2Scrap and mixed in some small metal gears from my stash. The metallic platinum embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle and the Want2ScrapChrome Drops add just the right amount of shine!
Here is a close up of the embellishment cluster in the bottom left of the layout. In addition to the gears and Chrome Drops, I added a couple of tickets from the Earth Wind Fire Chipboard Die Cuts. I used Khaki ink on the tickets and along the outer edge of the entire page.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
