Speed Up!! lo דף מעוצב - תן גאז!

This is my 2nd post today. For my Simple Doodles DT's post, please scroll down.





I've made this lo for the song inspiration at Scrap It With A Song, which brought the song "Born To Be Wild" by Steppenwolf. As soon as I saw the first lines, I knew I'd scrap my eldest's photos riding this motorcycle on an amusement park, 2.5 years ago. He was so excited about riding that motorcycle and had that determined look on his face to speed up, as if he was on a highway... And that's where the title came from.

I used the sketch from Sketchy Thursdays:



I twisted it  so the photos will work with the sketch.
No way I could make this lo with a vintage/shabby look. The colors of the photos said: primary colors, so I used some very bold and vibrant dp. To soften it a little, I spread some white acrylic paing underneath the dp. I just love the way it looks when you use dry brush with acrylic paint.
I used my zig-zag scissors to cut the edges of the red strip. The oval frame around the little motorcycle sticker and the zig-zag strip on the red strip - are die cuts.
I also used some small motor stickers  and felt letters, and I doodled some faux stitching on them.

And the other challenges:
z for zig-zag - alphabet
boys and their toys - cupcake craft
stitching - speedy's friends

Thanks for stopping by!
Don't forget to pop over again next week, cause I have some exciting news to share with you....


הכנתי את הדף הזה בהשראה של השיר Born to be wild, ומייד כשראיתי את מילות השיר, ידעתי שאשתמש בתמונות הללו של בני הבכור, רוכב על אופנוע חשמלי בבאלגן ביגור. הוא כל כך התלהב מהרכיבה אז, והיה עם מבט נחוש של חתירה למטרה, כשהוא הגביר את המהירות כל פעם.
הרגשתי שאלו תמונות שלא מתאים לעצב אותם עם צבעים רכים ובהירים (למרות שזה יכול להיות אתגר בפני עצמו....), אז השתמשתי בצבעים מאד בולטים, צבעי יסוד. כדי לרכך את האפקט במקצת, מרחתי צבע אקרילי לבן עם מברשת יבשה מתחת לניירות המדוגמים.

תודה שנכנסתן להסתכל! שתהיה שבת שלום, שבת של הנאה.
אל תשכחו לבוא לבקר אותי גם בשבוע הבא, שאז אוכל לשתף אתכן בחדשות מרגשות.....
