Hi! Thank you for stopping by. This month at Pixels and Paper we have a great photo inspiration... perfect for a male perspective.
For this, I took some of the darker colour tones  and used the idea of wheels and cogs to create a layout using photos of my son aged 8 or 9, enjoying his bike in  our yard.

The background paper from  Fab scraps was the perfect paper for this layout. Cogs were diecut from foil shim and then embossed using 2 different folders; one with gears and cogs and the other with a metal grid pattern.
Pop on over to: pixelsandpaper to have a look at what the rest of the team has done with this photo.

We'd love to see your artworks in our challenge this month.
Catch you again soon,
Cheers, Di


  1. Di I love the cogs on this layout - the metallic sheen and the embossing is fabulous.

  2. This is fun Di! The metallic colours work so well with your bike images!
