If you’re new to The BIG Road Trip – all the information can be found on this page. Curious how this series came about? Find the ‘why’ in this first announcement post. All BIG Road Trip posts can be found archived here. If you want to submit a guest post about your state, or if you want to share state-related art, stories, inspiration or links, email me at bigroadtrip[at]maritspaperworld[dot]com
These ‘follow up’ posts seem less interesting so I’m thinking of skipping the ‘follow up posts’ and instead, visit one state per week and add a mr. Linky list at the end of each post, so that you can leave your links there. I don’t know how to plan it all yet, but there might be some changes to the ‘system’ in the coming weeks…
Anyway – for now – short but sweet: the ‘follow up’ for Maryland.
Pat is following the BIG Road Trip serie and on her blog Altering Thoughts she writes her own, personal thoughts about the State we’re in and she adds information and extra’s. It is fun to hop on over to her post and see/read things that I did not find myself. Thank you for being a ‘partner in crime’ Pat!
Pat also made this tag – read where the inspiration came from HERE on her blog.
Flag for Maryland
When you read the post about Maryland, you know that I cycled through the state 😉 In 2009, Mirjam C. played along with my Top 2000 party and submitted this ‘bicycle inspired’ layout.
Mirjam is not the only one who used the Queen lyrics… here’s an ATC I made some time ago inspired by bicyles.
..and that’s it about Maryland. If you have something extra to add, leave me a comment or email me, and I’ll add it to this post.
Next, we will travel to Virginia
I know there’s not much time – but if you are an artist living in VIRGINIA and you would like to write a guestpost to show us around your neighborhood, I would be very grateful. You can contact me at bigroadtrip[at]maritspaperworld[dot]com
Residents from other states who want to write a guestpost are of course welcome too. We like to find out the ‘non touristical places’ that are inspiring for creative people/artists to visit. You know, info like where to find that special, tiny shop that carries the best painting brushes, that old bookstore that sells vintage books or that one spot in nature that – when you stand there – shows you a breathtaking view on the surroundings and scenery… that sort of info.
Take a look at the list on The BIG Road Trip page to see which States are still vacant and send me an email if you want to be a host. I would love to have some company and a guide every now and then, while traveling through the States!
