Enjoy the Journey with Susie

Hello and welcome! Susie hosting the blog today with a layout featuring the Earth Wind Fire Collection.

My great-nephew absolutely loves trains and I was tickled to get these pics of him (and his mom) taking a ride at a local amusement park. All aboard!


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 and the Chrome 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 PowderPuff Chalk Ink on the tickets and along the outer edge of the entire page.
