Hi Scrapping Friends!
Today I'm sharing a layout that I created using the Planes, Trains & Automobiles cut file from the Just Nick Studio shop!
The train in the Planes,Trains & Automobiles cut file set were perfect to document this photo of Max's Day Out With Thomas! Max enjoyed meeting Sir Topham Hatt and had a fabulous time
being a passenger on Thomas The Train.
I used the Go See Explore collection from Echo Park for most of this layout with the exception, the base patterned paper is from an older collection A Boy's Life.
I started by enlarging the train and cutting the image on some pattern paper. Once this was finish I used the offset function in Silhouette to create an outline, which I used as a guideline for my stitching. Next, I cut the offset image from some pattern paper and adhered to the background. I then hand stitched around the entire train using white embroidery floss.
Here are some close-ups of my page...
I drew a few clouds to represent smoke and outline it with a black marker.
For this page title I chose the Today from the Word 2 cut file, cut it from black cardstock and outline around the edges with a white marker.
I added a couple of chipboard accents to bottom right hand corner of my photo, along with my title.
I wanted to use some buttons for the train wheels but it just didn't look quite right so I ended up using enamels dot instead.
I finished my page off by adding some gold stars around the page and my journaling.
Thanks for stopping by :)
I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful using Just Nick cut files!
