Digi Choosday Challenge – For My Dad!

Good morning everybody!  Hope this finds you well!

It’s Choosday which means it’s time for a new ‘Anything Goes’ challenge over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and as always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   

Don’t forget it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code on THE BLOG to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s for a limited time only so be quick!

The team are following a vintage theme this week so I thought I would make a tribute to my dad.  I found a few old photos (my dad in 1959, a train from one of our MANY trips to railway yards when I was little and his motorbike).  I scanned them and recoloured them to match the other embellies that I had digitally changed to sepia.

He had a great many hobbies and interests, my dad, most of which I have been able to include on my project….books, movies, music (particularly jazz), trains, motorbikes, photography and so much more. This piece has a slight nod towards mixed media with some random stamping and splashes of paint to add further interest. 

Pre-coloured/Recoloured Digi Embellies: Movie Can, Movie Camera & Books from WINNIE FRUIT PUNCH – Jazz Sentiment from WORK & PLAY 8 – Ticket from DAISY DAYS – Camera from WINNIE STARFISH & SANDCASTLES
Dies: All Occasions ‘Cogs’
Other: Vintage Photo DI (naturally) - Bike & Boat Charms – Cardboard Letters
