I loved doing this challenge. I do so many LO with people 
in them and this one I is a photo taken on our trip too the 
Victorian Grampians. 

The challenge I have completed it for is over at Bird Is The Word.
The challenge was to use the word Travel/Explore. As you can see
I chose to use the word travel.

I have used cardstock and my patterned papers are Prima's
Reflections Collection "Shimmer" and Kaiser Crafts Marigold
Collection. The Magpie and grapes/leaves I fussy cut from 
Feature Arts Golden Memories - Southern Journey range. 

The cog, spoke wheels, rings and the word travel are
from a newly formed chippie business called Scraptopia.
The owner Kylie has many chippies to pick from and they 
are all wonderful. I chose these ones and colored them with
my brown Copic (E47) because I felt it give them an old out 
door look. I hope you like my latest LO and there is still time 
for you to drop over and join in the challenge at Bird Is The Word.

I distressed the Prima paper and then used Distress Ink - Gathered
Twigs on the edge as well as the edges of the other papers. 
The stamp I have used is Kaiser Crafts - Rocks which fitted so well 
with the rocks in the photo. The word Victoria was from Kaiser rubon
