Enjoy The Journey

Simon Says Stamp and Show - A Childhood Memory.
Compendium of Curiosities - Weathered Wood Grunge, page 50 of the book.
The Sunday Stamper - Sentiments

I'm combining challenges yet again as my dad is still in hospital and I am spending most of my time visiting, so here is my contribution for the three challenges above.  A childhood memory for me was day trips out with either the family or school and I thought this image represented that perfectly and so does the sentiment, Enjoy The Journey.  I used DI pumice stone and tea dye for the background along with one of Tim's masks.  The weathered wood grunge technique has been applied on my three circles.
I have highlighted enjoy the journey on the car and duplicated the sentiment on my three circles.  Added Idea-ology and distressed edges completes my entry for this week and only just in time too LOL.  Thanks for stopping by.  Tracy x x

Tracy, I'm so sorry to hear about your dad, and I wish him a quick and easy recovery. I hope you're doing okay-- I know how stressful that is.

You've certainly done a gorgeous job on your CCC piece! The little blue discs look great and compliment the vintage, steampunk themed background beautifully. A fabulous journey, indeed!

You and your family are in my thoughts. ♥
