These photos were of our trip down to the Argentinean Patagonia back in January/February of 2009. A was only 7 months old when he took his first horseback ride. He wasn't sure at all what to think of it! But we're firm believers in instilling a sense of adventure from an early age. Our kids have been exploring since birth with parents like us! lol
Supplies used: Patterned paper "Marjolaine" line from Basic Grey
Alphas from Recollections, Stickles
Buttons, gems, ribbon, brads, cardstock - unknown manufacturer
I did some inking on the background page. I'm still working on blending but I did an OK job here using blue and green inks. Then I added my stack of embellies. I wanted to use ribbon because I have some that goes really well with the patterned paper I used. I decided to alternate strips of ribbon (and one strip of washi tape) with some buttons and a few gems. Definitely a different look for me but I like it.
These alpha colours were perfect for the patterned paper and I added some "stacked" Stickles dots.
A few brads around the journalling finished off the layout.
