Family Art




We visited family on Monday, my BIL and SIL had this old memory book of my Husband's mother. There are pressed things, tickets, mementos, calendars of real dates she and my husband's dad went on. It was hand made from manilla paper, and this was from 1929 to 1931. Then, here was this page of faces that she had doodled with ink and a fountain pen. So charming. So I made copies of them and also did an altered card for my journal and some writing to accompany it.

Also the other art of collage is my daughters faces, and my alterations. This is framed and measures 11X15. Also I have a copy of this for my journal work this summer which is suffering, I have things tucked in and some things glued but not really finished.

Do you ever feel like talking about something in your blog you didn't post about?
Happens to me all the time. I most always have no photos to go with the thing that is pressing my mind.

That is my MIL in that wedding photo which I have always thought beautiful.

Oh my goodness--what a find! I love the sketched faces--just the fact that art was always and will always be a passion.
