Cadillac Ranch and American Crafts

There has been some discussion over at My Scrapbook Nook lately about using mists and paint.

I used to steer clear away from them until I realized how much fun the are.

This page about the Cadillac Ranch, outside of Amarillo, Texas called for lots and lots of paint and mist.

We decided one week that we just wanted to get out of town for the weekend. We made hotel reservations, packed up the car and left with plans to go to the zoo, to swim at the hotel and just relax and to enjoy our quick getaway. While there we found out about this place- the Cadillac Ranch- where there are a dozen or so cadillacs buried partway into the ground. It has become quite the tourist attraction and people armed with cans of spray paint and cameras are commonly seen. There was a photo shoot going on while we were there. The kids thought it was cool to climb in the cars and see all of the cool colors. 

And, see? The paint totally works here ☺
