Mixed Media Monday = Vintage Children
This week over on Mixed Media Monday Cindy is guest hosting again. Her challenge theme is "vintage children". I chose one of my favourite vintage children images and worked from there. I used an old photo frame, removed the glass and filled out the inner sides a bit so it is more like a shallow shadow box. I covered the backing with some fabric and vintage laces etc. The flower in the corner of the image is one that I crocheted myself for this piece. The embellishments are some vintage buttons, a gorgeous old and rusted vintage key and a beautiful bisque doll that is around 100 years old, dug out from a bombed doll factory in Thuringia, Germany. (You'll probably see a few more of these appearing in my art once the lot I won on Ebay arrives, grin!) The piece measures around 20x15 cm or approx. 8x6 in.
