Rusted Relics

The inspiration for this layout came from 2 sources. Natalie Kalbach's layout "Old", in Somerset Memories, compared "when I get old" to a 1945 vintage truck. Then my DH, Bob, turned around on a drive to Fairchance Pa. a couple weeks ago to photograph these colorful "Rusted Relics" as he titled them.

So, in honor of my milestone birthday, I described the machines and me: "Wrinkled; Rusted; Unruly; Chained to a job; Strong; Determined; Gets through rough spots; Finishes the job." All appropriate adjectives! 




The alphas are customizable foam stickers: the top layer peels off and I sprinkled 2 colors of glitter to get the look.  Here's how:



Have a good evening!
