5 COOL ELEMENTS FOR A CAR ALBUM
It is a common misconception that scrapbooking is a strictly female oriented activity. In fact, many of the more artistic male population also engage in this addictive hobby. One of the most popular topics amongst these crafty men is – to no surprise – cars. If you want to put together a car album of your, here are five tips on what to include.
#1 Car quotes
Ever heard wise words like “four wheels move the body, two wheels move the soul”? One of the most impactful ways to begin a scrapbook project is to commence with a memorable quote. Scribe your favorite saying on the front page of your album for an inspirational opener. Or leave the best line for the last page to conclude the book.
#2 Vintage car postcards
If you are a fan of vintage cars, try to look for images of them to add to your scrapbook. Rather than simply sourcing and printing them from the Internet, scour second hand stores for vintage postcards that showcases unique cars on them. This will definitely give your album an authentic vintage vibe.
#3 Car magazine cut outs
If vintage is not your cup of tea, car magazines are probably your best source for high-resolution photographs of contemporary supercars. The glossy cut-outs from magazines are also one of the best material to piece a collage together. Try to sort out your photographs by the color of the cars you pick. It will provide a much neater look for your scrapbook.
#4 License plate rubbing
While an actual license plate may be too thick and heavy to be glued to the pages of your car album, you can try to make a wax rubbing of it. All you need to do is to purchase a wax rubbing kit and tracing paper from your local art supplies store. This technique is not difficult and can help you preserve all of the unique plates you have come across on the road.
#5 Car stickers
While we don’t actually mean the type of stickers you would find in the scrapbooking aisles of art stores (though you would find a good selection of car stickers there), collecting and adding witty car bumper stickers to your scrapbook will make it much more entertaining.
