I want to ride my bicycle...

…..it's a long time since I did!

The new theme at Moo Mania and More is 'Wheels' so I made this page for MM and for AJJ where Susi's theme of Collage(with that twist) is keeping me busy using up my scraps!!
As there are 'no faces allowed' I have covered the cyclists face with a ticket stamp(not sure whose) and is variation of something I saw on Valerie's blog!!
The background was partly there so I added ink and my scraps. The bottom left corner is a leftover piece of acetate that I had coloured with alcohol inks. The man on the bike is from some tissue that had had various bits and pieces torn out!



Thanks for looking, Chris

Fun piece, poor man can't see where he is going and it will be my fault if he has an accident! Thanks for another lovely page for AJJ, hugs, Valerie

That's a great page. I like the hilly road the bicycle is traversing.
So you are home now and you can put your feet up.
Lucky you with your sheep. We don't have many round here, it's mostly arable. It's beautiful though!
Thanks for all your comments....

That is a marvellous background with great depth, and clever that the bicycle is on tissue.
I'm finding the list of challenges on the right very interesting, thanks!
