I got the bright idea to mount all my unmounts onto cling sheets. I didn't even remember what stamps I had let along how many. Yeah, I'm still trying to finish up that monumental task. I started ordering cling sheets and retrimming all my stamps onto those. Now I'm putting "Tack It Over Again" to the backs and mounting them with that stuff. Much faster. I did get my mounts out of boxes so I can see what I have.
This piece is unfinished. I will load another photo when I finish it.
Experimenting with cloth. I coated a piece of fabric that I did not like with two coats of gesso. then added spray washes (Tim Holtz) and embedded a piece of cheescloth I had ran through the printer. Next I added crackle paste.
I found these old photo's in a antique store. The guy on the far right is so handsome. I'd have given some one a run for her money over this guy.
I started this altered book about a year ago and have made little progress. I think I just get involved in too many other projects. None the less, I've got a long way to go before finishing this book. It is themed on old antique photo's. I love the verse on the right page. It is quite true, I try to remember what the voices of my loved one's sounded like but only vaguely recall.
