A Vintage Journey: Fond Memories of my mum.
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.
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.
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).
