A Journey.....

Every week my hubby works hard to provide for us.  
He drives truck so that means he is away from us a week at a time.
Its not easy for him or us but its a good paying, honest, and demanding career that takes him to a lot of wonderful (and not so wonderful) places and meets some interesting and fascinating people - some that have become his friends and some that he would rather forget.
Its a stressful job because you have to deal with a lot of people that do not understand the rules of
road - like not driving in the middle lane if you are driving slow on a three lane highway because trucks can not pass on the far lane. Or they think that big trucks can stop on a dime raced around him and then slammed on the brakes...its dangerous and unappreciated job.  People don't want big trucks in their way but they want their stuff on the shelves at their store.  Some people do not realize that without those big trucks in their way while they are racing to work (usually checking emails, brushing their teeth, combing their hair or things I can not mention) they would not have a job - nothing to bring the raw materials in and nothing to bring the finished product out.
Like I said he works hard at a thankless job he really does love most of the time.

So, thanks honey

Here is the layout I created using the Scraps Of Darkness September kit 'Tanya's Industrial Odyssey'

I had a lot of fun creating this masculine layout using the Marion Smith Time keeper papers

I die cut some gears and added natural sand texture gel to them.  I covered them with two different liquid pearls from precious kits. I then added some crackle medium to spots.

I had seen on the Bo Bunny blog a technique using a stencil, modeling paste and different colors of liquid pearls.  The effect was very cool, but I wanted it o be more textured so I used natural sand texture gel, then the liquid pearls.  I LOVE how it turned out.

For the title - I cut the 'journey' out of one of the papers, inked the edges, added the smaller letters from my stash then added some crackle medium

I also made drips using the dark chocolate truffle lindy's mist from the color add on.

Thanks for stopping by!
