These photos are of my grandfather's first car - a 1928 Hubmobile. My mother told me it had a rumble seat. My mother and my Uncle Ted (argyle sweater and plaid jacket - admittedly not the greatest combinations) and some family friends are standing on the running board.
Hupp Motor Company was founded in 1908 and competed against Ford and Chevrolet. By 1928, sales of these autos had reached 65,000.
I made the paper for the background by copying early Hupmobile ads from the internet. I then created a collage which I covered with 2 coats of Mod Podge.
The remainder of the design was inspired by Bubbachooka's Steampunk Butterfly Bella. As usual I built my design from the bottom up and when I finished my LO, I found that I had covered up too much of my Hupmobile background, so I took my page apart so that I had fewer layers and more background. I'm much happier with the result.
I thank my dear friend Chez for the wonderful gift of DA chicken wire chipboard.
