I've used my little man Tyler's wish for the future... to become a train driver. He is OBSESSED with trains, like every little boy I suppose, but he has been mad for trains for three years now and I guess we thought he'd be into cars, lego, guns, other things by now... but nope! Just trains!
The other night I overheard him telling his little sister in a very serious voice that he couldn't play with her because he was very busy and had to go to work because there was passengers waiting. And it's starting to rub off on Holly - she likes to tell me 'Tyler likes trains' and asks if we can go on train rides. Ugh, enough already kids. I know more about trains than I have ever wanted to know!
For this layout I've used some vintage train tickets, washi tape and a heart bottlecap from A Little Somethin'. I misted the background with yellow chalkboard mist and red glimmermist (although it looks more orange in the photo). Do you know what I used to mask the background? Toilet paper! :) I was originally planning on using a serviette to make a blotched, soft-focus kind of background but couldn't find one, so loo paper was the next best thing! Misting on it didn't work out too well though, but it did make a good mask.
