A Winter Short Track Race


I took a great series of pictures of Tim at a bike race this past winter. I took me awhile to decide how best to use them on a layout. And then I had to find the right papers. I got a hold of some CM Motor Grunge papers and stickers with gears. And the orange was the right color to make all the other dark, drab winter colors pop. The base is SU Brocade Blue. I also used SU Only Orange, Bashful Blue and Basic Black. I punched some circles to go with the gear theme. The only stamping in the title, and I used SU's Collage Alphabet in Basic Black ink. I really need some gear or bike wheel type of stamps. The journaling is done in the large black circle with a white gel pen; and it says - Sunday, Jan. 25 2009 Renaissance Park Single Speed class 42 degrees - brr.

At least he stayed warm riding. I can't believe I stood out there and took pictures.
