My post on the Sassy Lady blog is inspired by an upcoming event here in our area. This weekend, the Birmingham Museum of Art will open a new exhibition call Warhol and Cars: American Icons. I am so excited when we have a new exhibition at the museum, and am especially excited about this one. I find Any Warhol to be so interesting in so many ways. And I LOVE his art.
I decided to create a card in the Warhol style and Great American Road Trip. Growing up, my family always took long road trips to different parts of our country every summer. And the earlier trips were taken in cars without air condition. (I know, I'm telling my age) It is hard to believe now that we would travel with the windows down and our hair blowing. But we did, and we loved it.
I have committed to not buying any paper this summer. I am just determined to use up this paper that is taking over my life. I am sure none of you have this problem. LOL!! So I can tell you that the entire card was made from paper in my scrap drawer. The cars were cut from the NIFTY FIFTIES cartridge. I wanted to make sure I used colors of the time period. I added Glossy Accents to the cars so they would look like they had a shinny paint job. Wouldn't it be fun riding around in one of these classic American cards!!
The Fifties and Sixties were a wonderful time for the American Automobile. They were truly works of art.
The sentiment is a cut from the SUMMER CELEBRATIONS cartridge. I just loved the font used here and thought it matched the time period perfectly.
If you get a chance, tell me about your favorite road trip.
