While we were in Christchurch we visited the museum.
One of the exhibits was this 24 gold plated speedway bike on which Ivan Mauger won 6 World speedway championships.Read about it here.
I started with a cream paper that featured gold circles.
Next I tore 2 scraps of patterned paper featuring circles that looked to me like wheels and inked the edges with "old paper" which comes out looking like gold edging.
I had 2 smaller photos so adhered them one on top of the other and matted on a neutral coloured background.
I hand stitched 2 rows at the top and one at the bottom in black to resemble tyre tracks (?)
Yes there is a row of stitching at the bottom cut off by the scanner.
The tickets made good journaling as all the necessary words were there. After adding a couple of arrows, I'm done!
