ETA: I have not submitted art work in over two years, and after I posted this last night took a chance and sent it to Stampington. I was asked to send it to them for publication, so my photos have been removed of the journal. I am super happy right now. My last publication was my stroke journal, so this was the kick I needed to get going again! :)
For many years now, I have been collecting various little items to use in my artwork. My weakness would be vintage photos, laces, hankies, ribbon and mother of pearl buttons. I love to create using old vintage items because they feel like something loved and treasured. There is curiosity in the CDV or cabinet card that you may find and they have lost their way from ancestors. I wanted to make the little photos feel loved again!
This little chipboard journal was a combination of old photos that needed a home and to be loved in a new format. The project could also be done using copies of your own family photos, or favorite collage images.
