See the U.S.A.



Although Bleubeard and I are hosting Art Journal Journey, where my theme is Summertime Love, I'm also joining Try it on Tuesday, where their theme this fortnight is tags.  No step out photos today because I think you can read the sentiment.  And I'm quite certain you can see the tag I included, too.  I think you can see how the tag fit with my travel theme.

The color didn't exactly look right in the above scan, so I tried to color correct it in Photoshop.  I think I made it worse!

Materials used include a map of my city, a gifted tag, a fussy cut Chevrolet from an old National Geographic, and computer generated text on colored printer/copier paper.  The sentiment reads "Let's take a trip this summer!" and "We can see the USA in our Chevrolet."  I added the holes so the page will fit in my 3-hole binder after I scanned the page.

Bleubeard and I are delighted you joined us today where we decided to take a summertime trip.  Please also join us at Art Journal Journey where the theme this month is Summertime Love 






and at Try it on Tuesday, where their theme this fortnight is tags.  I hope to see you both places.

What a fantastic idea - I would love to take this trip in such a fabulous car with you even though I think we will need an exorbitant amount of fuel-lol.
Super to see a tag for Try It On Tuesday as well - thanks a lot dear Elizabeth!
Happy start of the new week to you!

Perfect travel theme. Summer is all about those trips, isn't it? This really is a great theme Elizabeth. I have a few ideas I am just about to go try out so you will (hopefully) see them soon. Happy Monday. Hugs-Erika

Oh Yes! I will take a trip with you! This car will be the ideal vehicle for a road trip! You will have to do all the driving though as I am used to driving on the WRONG side of the road! Hugs, Chrisx ps can you please whisper to me how old you are?

"We 3 Kings" made me giggle. They look like cherry tomatoes. I admire your perseverance, Elizabeth. That's quite a collection of ICADs!

I love your use of maps as part of the art journal journey theme. Drive 55. I wish we still did. They raised the speed limit in Michigan to 75 on the highways -- which means that everyone is going 85 or 90 and it just feels scary! Enforcement isn't this state's strong suit...

This is a great page Elizabeth! I love the car, and the map of course. Plus great embellishments - I have had a really busy work week and I can't believe how far behind I am in reading your blog.
