The Journey this time at "A Vintage Journey" is "fond memories". I have chosen to do something about my mum and I have used a photo that, although I was not around for the memory it's self, I remember my mother and grandmother showing me the photo and telling me the story of my mums "unfortunate" hair cut.
When she was a little girl, she had decided to give herself a hair cut one day. it was truly dire and she knew she might get in to trouble. she decided to get rid of the evidence (? lol) as in her childs head, there was some logic to that. so she hid the scissors and threw away the bits of hair. I think she maybe forgot her mother had eyes and the real evidence was the state of my mums hair. it was "saved" by giving her the old fashioned "bowl cut" lol.
And here she is the next day in the photo. its a bit blurry as its printed on to calico, so here is the original.
My Tim Holtz influences:
1st: well I have been admiring a lot of his collage style canvases and such he has been doing recently. I wanted to do one of my own but with lighter colours and utilising fabric more than paper. So this is sort of my version of those collages. 2nd: It uses a fair few Tim products like distress stains (antique linen and vintage photo) the belt buckle brad, stamps ( damask, apothecary text, and classic #11 (I think) )i used some of his ephemera as my mum really did get a perfect attendance award from school, the ephemera butterflies, some paper (the ruler) and some of his rose fabric trim stuff (which i forget the name of).
I made one of these with a photo of my dad a while back. so now i have a matching pair :)
