Driving the Bus | Inspiration

The new stuff is in the shop and wow, I love it.  The Escape pieces have a travel theme to them that is so perfect now that I have summer break on the brain.  (One more week!!!)  Anyway, we have not had any trips lately but I really wanted to use these new fun items, so I just needed to make them work.

I searched through my photos and found two that I already had printed but had done nothing with.  Yippee!  These are pictures of my daughter on an old bus at the train graveyard outside Atlanta.  It was a cool day we spent exploring a piece of history with our cameras.  The lighting in the bus was incredible.  And it was really interesting to see my girls walking into a different time period.  But anyway...

The pictures of her on this bus and the Escape tags and badges just fit together good enough.  It was time to create.

I started by laying out tags through the center of my background.  They looked cool, but I wanted to make sure to tone them down a little to the photos were the boldest thing on the page.  I added this pretty star vellum over the tags.  You can still see them, but the boldness of them is muted.

I really liked the way it turned out.  There but not overwhelming.  I of course had to add some badge buttons as well.  Love those.  I thought the geo tag one helped with the whole destination feel.  I know she is not really driving the bus and we were not traveling, but the pictures tell a story themselves and the tag just worked!

Definitely check out the new awesome shop items!!  You will love them!
