Dodge parts

Todays layout is a bit overdue, but finally done.  This is for August's monthly sketch layout at Artistic Creationz.  Its great to find sketches needing more than one or two photos, even though these are weeny little photos.  So I thought what a great opportunity to use all these lovely photos taken by the NZ Rodder magazine of our pride and joy - our 1938 Dodge pickup.

Believe it or not I did actually start with a paper covered with cars, then placed my little 2"square photos as per sketch, picking out the purple and green from the photos.  Lots of trinkets, die cuts and bits finished the centre.  The frame around the title is from Dusty Attic, DA0869 - Elegant Frames.
It took a few days of thinking as to how to finish the outsides of the page, which I  bricked with texture paste, gesso'd & painted green & purple, then gesso'd again.  For the finishing touches I used a flourish stamp using TH Brushed Corduroy distress ink, and inking the edges and bricks also.
Another layout just a little different than my normal, but we've got to think outside the square a bit to learn now don't we.  I enjoyed the challenge, and have seen it is quite different to the other layouts created for this challenge.
