Precious Memories Altered Book Box
The Old Farmhouse Gathering Team on Etsy is preparing for a Mother's Day Celebration and this is the first of my two entries. I love making assemblages in book boxes. This one has a page from an old "campground meeting" song book decoupaged on top of vintage style paper. Lots of other goodies include a baby shoe candle light, a little cameo, forget-me-nots, tea stained lace and antique buttons. I experimented with printing a vintage photography of two little children in a wagon onto osnaburg cloth and I love the way it turned out! This was a departure from the painting I have been doing and nice for a chance of pace. Sometimes going in a different direction is a good thing.
