Vintage {Art Journal}

DLP July 4 Sisters History

Documented Life Project:

July Theme - Ephemera
July 4 - Art Challenge: Using Old Maps, Letters, Tickets & More
Journal Prompt:  Life...with a history

I used vintage papers, sheet music, a very old book and a post card collected from antique shops, as well as a vintage Simplicity pattern, and a studio photo of myself and my sister from 1951.

I had just turned 4 and she was almost 3. I remember the dresses. Mother made most of our clothes, and she dressed the two of us alike most of the time, except for the colors of our dresses. These dresses were polka-dotted with solid trim. Being a redhead, I did not wear red. My sister’s dress was red, and mine was navy blue.
