Think Monday, THink ATC - Autos


I love images of vintage autos, so this challenge was a no-brainer. Here's one of my favorites (from Flicker free collage images), on the road again! One of my favorite things to do is to take a drive down country roads, nosing about quaint little antique shops and small town cafes, apple orchards, and pumpkin patches.

  4. Great card, great song, Bev! "Like band of gypsies we go down the highway..." I just love maps used in art, and this piece turned out great. You asked what kind of journal I use: I like a spiral bound sketchbook with paper of least 65 lb. weight because I usually work a page to death! When I'm painting background, I put large peices of cardboard or posterboard between the pages to protect those underneath from seepage around the edges. The spiral allows the pages to turn easily, after I've added so many layers of ephemera. I wish we could create togethre too; I think we'd have way too much fun!

    Love,
    Alberta
