Waiting for the Train

This weekend we too Benji and the girls up to the Whangaparoa railway and farm. Benji is obsessed with trains and he was in heaven as he waited on the platform for the little train to arrive. After he had had his rides he still wanted nothing more than to sit on the bench and watch the train doing its circuits!
The color combo at the 'Color room' this week was perfect for these photos that I took. I love the soft, but masculine palate. I used map paper as the background and lots of train embellishments from October Afternoons 'Boarding Pass' collection. I used string and brads to mimic map pointers from my title to the photos. I handwrote my journalling onto the background papers but I think it is a little hard to read and I wish I had painted over the area where I intended to journal with a little white paint beforehand. The flowers are handmade from silk ribbon dyed with Tim Holtz distress stains.
