Tribute To The Ford 8N Tractor
I love this tractor! My family owned one when I was growing up and my brother has one now that I can use. It's not a perfect workhorse but it's lovable.
The picture was transferred to the journal with a neat product called Sheer Heaven, and can be found on the Art Papers section of Jessica Wesolek's website http://cre8it.com. This is not a paid endorsement, but it's a neat product. Print the picture onto this product at your computer and, with rubbing alcohol, you can transfer it to your journal.
I used a grid to show what I consider the unique or memorable attributes of the tractor. Too bad I can't capture the gas fumes of a flooded out engine, the really really slow cranking speed of the starter motor, the long grinding time before the engine fires, or the wobbly front wheels as you flash down the road at 15 or 20 m.p.h.
