Welcome to the Australasian Blog Hop featuring artwork and Nevermore paper. If you have come from Meryl Cheetham – Mez’s Craft Room you are in the right place.I have some artwork to share with you and the link to the next place in the hop is below. Be sure to check out all of the ideas shared here with this lovely paper collection!
For your enjoyment I have created the following page layout. I was intrigued by the orange and black and for me it speaks loudly of Harley Davison motorcycles too. You know all the Ride a Harley signs are Black and orange. Anyhow, I also have the Born to Ride Stamp Set and wanted to pair these two up. Truth be told my dad used to ride a motorbiike….when he first dated my mum and I think it was a Harley. I am sure I will find the right photos for this page one day but for now I found this awesome guy and his awesome Harley with a fab passenger seat…just my style of thing lol. If you would like to see the article I nabbed these pics from it is here. (Opens in a new window)
OK…let’s get to the artwork – not my photos but I think you get the idea – if your dad rides a Harley grab some snaps, Grab Born to Ride C 1483) and put your Nevermore grey paper to use. I have used Sunset and Black Cardstock. I also used Silver heat embossing for the Barbed wire. If I was really particular I could also have stamped and silver embossed a motorbike and fussy cut some chrome to put on the silhouette bike image. I used a stamp from One Way Borders (C1561 NLA) for the tread and did not stress over it not being perfectly stamped!
No 1 Dad is from Artiste Cartridge while Go and the Sunglassses are cut with the new Artistry Cricut Cartridge. The whole layout started out being based on Pattern 5 page 15 of Make it From Your Heart Vol 2 – but I have altered the sizes a little. I did try this orange side up but preferred the grey. You could swap it around completely and use whisper for your background then the orange side would work.
I hope you are inspired and have a bike rider in your family for this idea!
