Scrap Africa Challenge - Whats your mode of transportation?

Hello friends, its that time again for the Scrap Africa Challenge. Whats your mode of transportation? Whether it be planes, trains or automobiles, pick one or pick all and go check out this challenge.

When I saw this challenge I knew I wanted to use Tim Holtz stamp set without a doubt, I just love it and the details are great! So off to my art journal I went and started on my playful journey.

I decided on the kraft paper portion of my journal.  I covered with Tim's tissue paper and Finnibair's Matte Gel Medium to put into place.  I stamped my images on to G45 ATC tags, a little Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body Acrylic paint in magenta and that's when it Popped. Don't you think?

 I had some little tickets from Maya Road, stamped with some words from the stamp set, they seemed to go along with the layout, but there still seemed to be something missing...

...I know, every time I look at a map, it make me want to put stick pins in and map out a trip with string or flag pins, lol, so I grabbed some blue stretchy cord and some bright green brads to map out my journey. Of course a few little flower embellishments I got from Miriams Crafting Supply finished the piece perfectly.  Want to go on a trip?  Check it out...

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments.  Here's wishing you all a fantastic day!! TTFN
