This is my lo for December PageMaps Challenge map #1
The photo is of my little brother and on an old train at a park. The piece of background pp with the screws in the corners was a 12x12 sheet, but I was able to trim away the outside border and allow it to be matted onto the gear pp. Before matting, I cut away the center from the gear pp so I could use it as another layer on the page. After matting the screw paper onto the gear paper, I added the pink/white pp, then the rest of the gear pp.
I matted th photo with white, then with a pink pp, inking the edges of each. I decided to ad eyelets to the small strip of pp. The tickets were cut from some pp and I stamped the trains onto them.
