Mad about tractors

This layout is made for February’s sketch challenge at Svensk Scrapbooking. The picture is taken last summer. DD is mad about tractors and she really loved trying both the big and the small one.
I’ve turned the “banner” into flowers and rotated the lower one so that the flowers grow upwards. I also choose to use a “landscape picture” instead of a “portrait picture” like the one in the sketch.
Here’s some close ups:

The background is decorated with Glimmer mist, gesso and acrylic paint. The tracks are made with ink and one of DD’s toy tractors.
If you like the layout you’re welcome to visit Svensk Scrapbooking and vote for it ;) (It’s an open vote, but you have to be a member).
Thanks for looking! Take care!!!


  1. Helene - this is just gorgeous - I love the colour and texture and those flowers are just awesome! I have been meaning to leave you a msg to thank you so so much for the leibster award... my life is a little upside down at the moment and I will absolutley pass it on and blog about it when things settle down... I really do appreciate it so very much - thank you! xoxo

  2. Lindo demais esta página!!!!
    Estou encantada.

  3. Really love this! You have such a cool style - all your own! It's rockin'!!! :D

  4. I love this page! How cute is that photo and I love that "tracks" you made all over your background! You have such a cute style!!

  5. Fab layout Helene, gorgeous colours and I love the track marks, very cool!

  6. Love, love, love this lo! love what you did for the background (doesn't the gesso wet you cs too much?? it wets the cs and then it is all crumpled, at least for me...).
    Love your take on the sketch, very whimsical and fun.

  7. Ååh vilken härlig layout! Supergulligt med blommorna! Både de som växer och de som hänger. Som vanligt finns det massor av små detaljer att titta på! Traktorspåren är ju bara för härliga! Cool bild oxå!

    Kommer helt klart att gå in och rösta på dig!
    Kram Maria
