Another one DONE!

So, another Child's Play Challenge was posted. This one was kind of tough.  You see, my kids are too old now, as well as I, so I totally missed out on the Gears toys!  Such a shame because they look like so much fun!

I decided to spin it a bit.  I work for an airline. I see some BEAUTIFUL sunrises. I try to capture those on my Iphone. They usually come out quite well.  As you will see on this layout.  I also decided to "play" on the word Gear.  Thanks to the help and collaboration of a couple of friends.  Friends that I usually "see" on a weekly if not daily basis.  All with the lovely Google Chat!!  I just LOVE bouncing ideas off of them.  It helps when you are just in a rut or you have a brain fart!!  Anyway, here is my take:


I also used masks and a gel medium to create the background. I also used inks to color the background.  This mixed media stuff is kinda fun.  It is DEFINITELY taking me waaaaaaaaaaaaaay out my comfort zone!
I can't wait to do it again! LOL  Thanks for looking!
