On our way home

August 29, 2020

from our few days in Toowoomba we stopped in at the Queensland Transport Museum at Gatton.  The children had a great time looking at all the trucks and planes on display including the ford in the foyer.  We also visited the Lights on the Hill Trucking Memorial which is in the park behind the Museum.  We have been listening to Graham Rodger sing about this Memorial for many years so definitely wanted to visit.  My pages begin with Very Vanilla 12″ x 12″ card.  I attached a piece of the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper to Early Espresso card before attaching to the Very Vanilla page.  I traced around a plate to cut a circle for each page from Very Vanilla card and cut them out.  I sponged Old Olive ink to the edges before attaching them to the pages.  I stamped the leaf image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set onto Very Vanilla card ten times using Old Olive ink.  The leaves are cut out using the co-ordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  I also stamped the flower from the Positive Thoughts stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Pacific Point card five times.  The flowers are cut out using the co-ordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  I also cut the flower centres from Pacific Point card using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  On the first page I attached the photos down the right hand side of the page.  The flower centres are attached to each of the flowers before leaves and flowers are attached around the edge of the sponged circle on the left hand side of the page.  I created the journaling on the computer and printed onto Very Vanilla card.  I cut out the journaling using the Rectangle Stitched Dies and attached it to an Early Espresso rectangle cut using the same dies.  The journaling panel is attached between the photos and the flowers and leaves.  I cut the title from Pacific Point card using the Playful Alphabet Dies.  Lastly I added a Basic Rhinestone to the centre of the flowers.

The Specialty Paper panel is attached to the right hand side of the second page and the sponged circle to the left.  I attached the photo to Early Espresso card before attached to the left hand side of the page.  The leaves and flowers are attached around the edge of the sponge circle and also have Basic Rhinestones added to the flower centres.  The journaling panel is created in the same manner as the first page.

I thought this might be a little fussy when I first started creating but I love the pages.  They bring back so many happy memories of our short break away.  I hope we can do more in the not too distant future.

Bye for now,

Kris
