Riding The T Art Journal Page

Acrylic Paint Acrylic Ink

My boys loved riding the T while in Boston recently. I wanted to make a page to remember this. My older son loved studying the maps, figuring out which lines to take, what stop we needed, and how many stops away that would be. My younger son loved the speed and sights rushing by the windows. Both loved standing and hanging on to the rails and hand loops while riding.

I created the background by scraping acrylic paint onto the page, including Folk Art metallic peridot (my favorite). I scraped some spots of silver metallic acrylic ink on top of that. I used gel medium to attach the Charlie tickets for the T. I used black acrylic ink and Sharpies to add the title, text, and T symbols. The circles were stamped with various lids with the acrylic ink.
