"New Ride"

I am totally hopeless at doing simple these days, I just have to stick something on every empty space I can see, but this month to challenge myself i wanted to try, it didn't quite go to plan and it almost had me in a frenzy but after adding a few more bits lol I was happy.

I loved this bright background paper but it was too busy for the photos so I watered down some white paint and painted the entire thing, once dry i used some sand paper to ruff up the paper here and there it didn't remove the paint but it gave it more texture, after that I sprayed some water downed paint here and there and using a texture stamp I stamped in 2 colours around the edge.

I am an collector of stamps but I always seam to forget about them so I have tried to use as many stamps as I could, these clouds have been stamped with a texture stamp, the small banner pieces also stamped, a little stamped bingo card and the background make 5 different stamps.

I knew I wanted to create a banner across the page so started with some Green Tara rats tail cord and cut done the photos and set about making random sized banner tags.

Adding a couple of small clusters of Green Tara flowers and cutting up a leaf ribbon in red to create small leaves in the clusters. 

Another cluster of Green Tara flowers this time using a 7cm petal flower folded up into 4 and lightly dusted with white ink.

Green Tara string in red was used to create a flower, and a spring flower topped with a cherry blossom crated the perfect flower, another petal but in 4cm was folded again into 4 and added to the bikes basket topped with a rose.
