Young at heart still

Sarah Here, with this weeks inspiration. This is my last LO using the kit but join me again next week when i will be showing you a couple of projects made with the left overs.

So back to this week. The cycle themed paper just screamed Daniel, my eldest son to me as he is sooooo into his bikes at the moment and more than happy to play in the garden practising his moves as he calls them, lol.

All materials from the kit except alphabets title, thread and blue CS.

Here are a few quick instructions.

Start by taking a Kraft CS as your base. Add a strip of bicycle PP to the top 1/3 of the kraft base and the mustard PP to the last 2/3 of the base.

Add a strip of orange herringbone PP and yellow spots PP.

Next attach a piece of the hounds tooth material to the right hand side under the middle strip.

Cut out two half circles from the red and woodgrain PP and make into cogs. Attach to the left of the fabric.

Next print your pics. I used the polardroid app that Leo has used before on crafty templates as i wanted a retro feel to the LO. Attach the pics over the cogs and fabric. I stitched around each pic with embroidary thread.

Attach the signpost (from the websters papers in the kit) using foam pads.

Next i cut some circles out of blue CS as embellishments and added over the fabric and signpost.

Attach your title to finish.

And there you go. I love how the kit colours are just perfect for boy LO's and give the project a very retro feel.
