I used a copy of a photo of my great-grandfather sitting on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. It was an early one! We think this photo might be from 1912. I love being able to incorporate historic family photos into projects. Here's a look at the "first layer" of the piece:
I adhered a piece of Destinations paper onto the panel. While it was still wet, I tore off strips from the edges and roughed them up (a little water spritzed on the edges helped in the distressing too). Once that was all dry I used stencils and stamps to lay down some more imagery. After that it was all about arranging all the gears and other elements. I love that part!
Be sure to head on over to the Studio L3 blog and see all the inspiring entries and Curiosity Crew projects. This is my favorite challenge so far!
