"Lulu's Loves Vintage" Fabric and Photos

                                          This is a page from my Fabric collage book and these are the parents of the children on the front cover, my Grandparents. I am my worst critic since it is driving me crazy that the  fabric transfer photo puckered on the left side. If I can figure out how to fix it without destroying the page I will, until then this is it. Next time I will know to place a piece of cardboard/chipboard underneath to help it lay flat, but since I didn't realize this was going to happen as this is my first book of this nature, always learning and living with our imperfections. I guess I need to overcome that. Today I'm linking up with Honey of 2805 Potpourri Friday and would like to give her a big "Thank You" for having me as one of her featured  bloggers today. I'm humbled and honored to be chosen, Hugs Honey and thanks again.:)

It looks great, and the puckering just adds to the vintage, hand-made feel! Valerie

What a gorgeous collage! I love every bit of it! You are lucky to have such an heirloom photo! I think we always see the imperfections in our work - but I think it is perfect. Like Valerie said - it adds to that vintage feel! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I think it looks lovely. If anything, the puckering makes it look even more true handmade/vintage. You do lovely work. :)

Oh my goodness this is stunning! I love all the layers and what a perfect way to display your heritage. I might steal a page from your book, and try making one of these family heirlooms too! Love it!
