I did manage to complete one piece very quickly - this collage of book pages and an image, both from the early 1900's. I purchased the book at a library sale for a dime and the photo I bought at a local antique store for fifty cents.
I enjoy rescuing photos from antique shops: I always wonder what happened that their family let such intriguing photos go?
I created this assemblage to take some outdoor photos including the collage - in it you see a piece of architectural salvage: a Victorian Eye Brow window I bought last week at Pasadena Architectural Salvage.
The box on the left was made to hold cancelled checks - definitely a relic from the past. On the right you see the collage which includes some quotes from Elizabeth Akers Allen, a poet from the 19th century. The quotes are primarily about again, which I thought matched the wistful expression on the mysterious man's face.
I hope by midweek I will have another report for you as I will be going to Florida at the end of the week to visit my new grandbaby and will be gone until Tuesday of next week.
