Lovin' Vintage Photos

                              I just finished the front cover of the fabric Family Photo Album from the class I took in Huntington Beach with the talented and wonderful teacher  KC Willis  and I'm loving playing in fabrics and old family photos. This photo was taken about 1911 which makes it 100 years old, Wow! On the left is my Aunt Vera, center my Uncle Vincent and right my sweet mother Violet, and apparently a new baby would have been born after which would have been my Uncle Victor.  This pic was transfered onto fabric and I have the original. I think my Mom is the cutest, even though she is my Mom!  This album is intended to be a family heirloom  of course and I will be finished in about a week so more wonderful pics are coming. Today I'm joining  Honey at with  Honey 2805 blog party and  Debra at A Common Ground .

Oh Marilou, I just lovin' your vintage album cover too! I love the array of fabric and lace. And, yes, I agree with you- your Mom is the cutest! Looking forward to seeing more! ♥

I just LOVE this Marilou...it's even more beautiful then I thought it would be. Makes me so sad I couldn't take the class, but you'll have to teach me the technique as it's probably very similar to the wall hanging. My biggest hangup on making more is the main canvas...I need to buy some, then I'm not a very good coffee stainer, then get those little globs of fabric to put in the bundles...helppp! I want to make some for Christmas gifts this year, but I need to get on the stick!!!
Lovely friend & so beautifully sentimental!!!
Hugs,
Susie
