My Melange Challenge art - "Adventure" June 15
This week's word for the Melange Challenge is "adventure" - an exciting word! Growing up inthe 1950's, my idea of an adventure was getting in our car, taking a packed lunch and going for an all day drive. Sometimes we took our fishing poles and stopped to fish in some river we found. Other days we explored small towns in the middle of Iowa, driving slowly around their town squares and looking in the store windows. Other times we "drove into town" as we called it and watched the people walking around our own town square on Saturday night.
My 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" ACEO card reminds me of my childhood adventures. The base is watercolor paper; I've added a map, a stamped car image, stickers, a compass brad, the dictionary word "adventure" and a vintage Chrysler car key.
