20 Years of Trucks - Journaling

 

Made with PSP X2, on a PC, with Win 7

 

I used several techniques from Ro's Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed. One that I used, was #19 - Text Effects, which I used to colour the outer frame of the photo matt.

Dear Diary

 

On the next page are a few of the trucks that we

 

have owned during the past twenty years. The

 

trucks have changed over the years, not only

 

because of the make and mechanical specs,

 

but because of the cosmetics and extras. These

 

three photos, show the biggest changes in the

 

trucks we've owned.

 

In the first photo is a Western Star with a single

 

bunk. You had to crawl through a space, much

 

like a wide window, into the bunk. Once you

 

were in there, it was comfortable enough to

 

sleep, but there wasn't much room to manouver.

 

The second truck was also a Western Star, but it

 

had a raised roof on the bunk and was double

 

deep, with a doorway, instead of a window. You

 

could actually walk into the bunk, by ducking a

 

little. It was great to be able to pull the curtains

 

across and stand to get changed.

 

The third truck is a long nose Peterbilt. It was

 

Ron's dream come true. It's wheel base was

 

longer than that of the any truck we had in the

 

past. There's even more room in the cab and in

 

the bunk to stand and move around. It even has

 

the flat steel bumper, instead of a curved one,

 

with the holes in it.

 

It should have been traded a few years ago, but

 

the long nose is a thing of the past, so we held

 

onto it. There isn't enough time left now to make

 

another purchase, because Ron wants to retire

 

and a purchase takes from three to five years.

 

Ron has driven to or through every province in

 

Canada, except British Columbia and every State,

 

on the North American continent, south of the

 

Canadian border. As you can see in the first photo,

 

I used to drive with him, prior to having my heart

 

attack. I haven't gone to as many places as he, but

 

have enjoyed the places that I've seen.

Great journaling and I really like how you've displayed it all...the text effects and the truck photo faded and worn into the background.

Sensational! Love the blended truck photo and the grungy feel to the pages, great journaling and what a story! Really nice job on the text effect frame, super choices of embellishments which are unexpected and thoughtful. Love it!

Neat - I like that you put the journaling in the frame, and the photo outside. Some wonderful effects here, and great blending work!

i'm so glad you shared this with us. Love the journaling and the trucks. My guys are always tickering on stuff and so my layouts are usually farm and grungy stuff. not sure if I'd know how to put a ribbon on things. keep up the good work. would love to see the other pages.
