One does not see the Flying A Gasoline sign much anymore. I saw many of them as a kid. I do know of one in a “museum” in Seattle. Kind of funny how this one came about....the man with the rifle hunting a Flying A bird. I am not one for guns for any reason so to have made a piece of art with a rifle is pushing it for me.
I am working on a new problem with circles. Larger is the name of the game, to be specific 4.5 inch circles. I have a surprise book I am making.....well actually four surprise books that are circular. Trying to figure out different bindings is the challenge because normal bindings do not work. I have come up with two bindings and am looking for two more.
I just learned something that I did not know about grommets and that is when you use them to hold plastic the plastic can move or rotate. That gave me an idea to work on for new ATCs or APCs. Stay tuned.
I am so glad that I found images of old bottle caps. They are perfect because they are round and they also have writing. Each October in Seattle there is a group called Zero Landfill. They fill a gymnasium with unwanted recyclables. It is so much fun to “shop” and everything is free for the taking. I found designer magazines offering samples for wallpapers and other designer ideas. Perfect for backgrounds!
