The Circle of Friends fearless leader, Sandi of CREATiveE ARTeries, selected the theme of Family heirloom for her journal. We were asked to fill in at least 3 of the compartments using real family images or collage images.
The above picture is how I received the journal.
I decided to use collage images since the journal already had a vintage theme and I couldn't think of how to make some of my images really fit the style. The images I selected are all from Alpha Stamps.
I had the most trouble with this one. Originally I was only going to use the Charlotte head but it looked to plain so I went hunting in my goodie box until I found some other items to go along with it. Also, I am not thrilled with the rick-rack around the image. I thought it would add something to the overall piece but it just stands out too much :(
This is my favorite image, I love it so much that I went searching for the little gun charms to add to it. A few of the other things I did to make the images look older was fray the edges and fold them in a few places.
Here is how the journal looked when I mailed it out.
I hope Sandi likes what I did, I think her journal is really coming together wonderfully.
