The colors in the picture are kinda off. The title is actually stamped in close to cocoa then black stamped over it so it gives it a shaded cool look. the road is not blue but black sponged ink. The SB paper is from the "slab" by provo craft. Regular cs is old olive, rust, black and white.
It was very, very easy to take the covers off of this scrapbook to cover them. I was able to leave the pages on the binding when I removed the covers. I took a sanding block and sanded the spine edges and then sponged black paint onto it. Covered the strip where the paint meets the sb paper with a piece of black grossgrain ribbon with a buckle on it. The tie for the sb is black organdy ribbon
The fence in the tree line is actually drawn with a fine line marker. I embossed and cut out the bikes in black and watercolored one purple and the other one teal. The colors of Dewayne and Dianes harleys.
I made this as a thank you gift for Dewayne and Diane for a set of running board type motorcycle pegs that they gave me for our motorcycle to make it more comfy when we go on long bike rides. They cost well over 100.00 and I just wanted to do something nice for them for giving them to us.
When I gave this to them at a bonfire cookout Saturday night. The first thing I hear from Dewayne when I handed it to him was, "sweet" They just loved it. So I am glad I went ahead and made one for them.
have a great day everyone.
