I decided to change the look of my trio of little Irene (photographed in 1921). The cardboard was held on with shards of metal and many broke off. These are not studio quality as the back says ‘postcard’. I gingerly lifted the first photo (which happen to be my favorite) and it tore across the side of her face. I was able to line it up and touch it up with a little pencil, but I was not happy I did this to a 91 yr old sweet photo. I was deciding what would look good with these and right away I thought of Tim Holtz. He does some neat ‘steam punk’ type of designs and his alphabet scrapbook paper looked perfect to me. I had to piece it a bit as the frame was longer. I when added a little gold paint to the frame itself to go with the goldtone color in the paper.
I should have scanned all these first…that’s another day.
Doing some dusting, etc. today. The hubby did vacuuming and laundry.
