Faithful To Vintage

Hi there, my Friends!
I don't know if I ever shared this little 'behind the scenes' secret concerning one of my art babies... ;)
Well, you see, when you browse through my Ephemera packs ('Melange' & 'Vintage Collectibles'), think that many of the people you see there, are actual relatives of mine.
Fun fact? ;)

Today I'd like to introduce you to my husband's grandmother and great-aunt who inspired these vintage art journal pages:


You should know me by now and know how much I love adding a vintage feel to my pages and layouts - all using quite simple methods and based on a limited color palette.



I think elements of fiber art also add to the general mood and create unique textures and depths...
I can never resist bits of lace, tangled threads and all kinds of fabric frills.


Also - there's nothing better than tea or coffee to create these vintage-looking stains.



That's me - faithful to vintage for many years now and never getting bored with it! ;)

Sending you lots of hugs
Happy creating!

Lovely pages...I really think I have to go 'back' to that part of my art (from years ago) some day. When I see your pages, makes me want to make them too!

Your journal pages are always gorgeous - and didn't know that some of the ephemera photos were relatives - very cool fact! I love your colors and textures used!
