Ready to Ride / My Mind's Eye

It's Friday...yessssss!  Fridays just feel good, don't they?  Today I'm sharing my latest layout for My Mind's Eye featuring the new Happy Camper collection.  I'm definitely not a camper, but this collection is great for just about anything outdoors.  We do love to go 4-wheeling around here, so these fun papers and embellishments were perfect for this picture of Reese on the Honda.

I used some spray inks, watercolors and acrylics on my background.  I really wanted to pull the pretty aqua color from the papers and stickers, so I smudged a lot of acrylic paint down using an old gift card.  I cut a cute arrow die cut from The Cut Shoppe on my Cameo and used that as a big background design piece.  I love how the pattern is choppy and scattered yet the arrows are still visible.

I used a combination of stickers, die cuts, rub-ons, wood veneer and flair here...all bits and pieces from this collection.  I love the neutral colors...definitely perfect for outdoor photos.  I love the rub-ons (as usual), and that pretty feather on the brown sticker is one of them.

I love how this cut file turned out.  I stitched through each row of arrows with gold thread and then added more under my photo & layers.  I added more stickers and pieces down at the bottom.  I love how the paint looks under the arrows!

These feathers are beautiful, and they are die cuts.  I love the pops of color, and they layered under my photo perfectly.

I layered more stickers and wood veneer here.  My title is a combo of alpha stickers and patterned paper.  I cut "Ride" on my Cameo and then added my journaling under it.

One last close up of the top...those little birds are rub-ons!  Aren't they so cute?  I used one of the date stickers here since I already had a few other circles on the page.  I finished it off with some navy blue Color Shine.

I had a great time creating this page...I hope it gives you some ideas on what you can do to scrap some of your outdoor activity photos!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
