this week's challenge at shopping our stash is called "transportation" so we'd love to see projects that involve a conveyance of any kind: cars, trains, planes, boats, campers, hot air balloons, bicycles, or, if you're deeply in xmas card mode, how about a sleigh?! i have been slightly obsessed with making collages from a book i got last spring at a garage sale called, "illustrated motor cars of the world" so as soon as i saw this week's theme, i knew exactly what i wanted to make:
if you follow my instagram or catch the sketchbook round-up posts i do here periodically, you'll know that for the last couple of months i've been playing around with the combination of rubber stamps (and/or ancient rub-on transfers) washi tape and vintage paper collage... in my own messy/grungy style, o'course! and i feel like all of that practice is starting to pay off now.
this time my car collage is on the front cover of a little (3.25 x 3.5") spiral bound blank book i'm adding to my etsy shop, just enough stuff. i've been on a roll making little books, actually, so i'll have a few more to show off very soon! of course i had to add coordinating vintage paper for the inside cover, and take the overall design to the back of the book, as well.
meanwhile, you have until next monday night to link up a transportational project with us at shopping our stash. be sure to check out the DT examples for loads more inspiration! ♥
