It looks like the colorful ice cream truck (also known as an ice cream van in the UK) with music you can't seem to get out of your head, that stopped on our block this summer before moving to the next street, has been retired until next summer.
ice cream truck/van (that attracts children with its music and bright colors)
that circled our neighborhood street
the big yellow school bus.
My individual pages are 8.5 X 11 inches (21,59 X 27,94 centimeters), so they don't fit side by side on my scanner. However, you should get the gist of the story of how the ice cream truck/van has been replaced with the school bus.
One of the things I've noticed is how very different some of our specific memories are of school days, depending on what country we grew up in. I'm learning a lot, too, because I had no idea heading back to school was so very different depending on where each of us grew up. I'm really enjoying this, because it's a never ending lesson for me, too.
Materials I used for this spread were various acrylic paints for the background, two 3-D embellishments, a sharpie, and the school bus I was able to fit (tape) together from parts I found on the internet. I painted the stop sign with a red marker. Since I only have black ink in my printer, I got the yellow school bus by using yellow copier/printer paper.
Bleubeard and I are so grateful you stopped by today, especially since we in the U.S. are in the middle of a three day Labor Day weekend.
