The lessons were a great reminder for me. I hadn't done much collage for a long time and at first it didn't feel comfortable. By the time I had finished my twelve little pages, I had hit my stride, and found my own voice again.
The pages are not bound yet. I've got them sitting under large heavy books so they will become flat. I will dream up some binding. The class has taught me I want to do more. I want to do more regularly. Perhaps joining Mary's monthly challenge is something I will look at, just to 'keep my hand in'.
I know I keep showing you these photos .. however, they are complete now. For the record, here they are as they appear in the book. When it's bound, I'll keep you in the loop.
|Page one. Mama makes the cover. Interesting.|
|My parent's life was rich. Hard work and hard play. There was a balance. I adore both these photographs. Especially Papa carrying Mama on this shoulders. "Special Delivery"|
|I don't pretend to know how Women did it at the turn of the century on the prairies, in Canada. They did. Amazing!|
|My flower girl days. Ah .. such great memories. How I loved to dress.|
|We were a threesome. Our little family.|
REMINDER: My 500th post is coming up in about TWELVE DAYS. To celebrate, I'm putting together a little surprise give away. I do hope you will join in. I'll keep reminding you. Did I tell you how much I love it you are all here? I had no idea where blogging would take me.
“Like the wind crying endlessly through the universe, Time carries away the names and the deeds of conquerors and commoners alike. And all that we are, all that remains, is in the memories of those who cared we came this way for a brief moment.” Harlan Ellison
