Things With Wheels

Good Morning, Everyone

This is a very exciting post for me! 

My first ever Design Team project for

A list of all the team members 
can be found on my sidebar.

The challenge theme this week is 

Things with Wheels

 the lucky winner will receive two digital images from

where lovely digital art is also available to  buy. 

There are new images and papers being added 
regularly so keep checking this fab range. 

Today I am using several of

lovely designs today:

The Caravan

The Pram

Apple Tree 
(from Apple Tree Cottage set)

 Basket of Apples
(from Apple Tree Cottage set)

 The floral backing paper
has been made using images from one of the lovely
 Daisy Papers Set also available to buy.

When  I saw this amazing vintage caravan I immediately thought
of people taking their whiole house contents 
with them in the caravan and having
to unpack it al on arrival!
Especially in the days before the "package holiday."

I  printed the image onto digital card and coloured it with promarkers.
I decoupaged some elements such as the window and curtains, and altered the door 
so that it sat open and added some steps to the door. 
I then added a little wooden cat at the window, a wooden dog chasing a ball,
a rope and tools which have been left handy for all the work to come!
The pram image I reduced, printed out and coloured with
 promarkers and put under shade.

The apple tree and basket are a part of another Desmet Designs
 set called  Apple Tree Cottage
 which I altered to fit this scene.
The apple tree and basket of apples
are also coloured with promarkers and some
flowersoft has been added to the leaves.
The floral backing paper has been made using 
some images from the Daisy Paper Collection from Desmet Designs.

Everything was mounted on A4 Card in light blue and I finished
off the border with faux stitching.
I added a bow of ribbons, string and what not then
finished off with a wooden patterned button.
I do hope you will join in with this lovely challenge.
