Mixed Media Monday - Mother & Daughter

I decided to do a vintage piece for this challenge. The old book is from Oscraps Charmes, the mother and daughter image from Flickr collage images, the "sprig" and ribbon from Honey Designs. Book title and author are fictional additons by me. Can you imagine ironing one of these dresses with a flat iron heated on the stove, after washing it on a washboard, of course?! Thanks for looking!

  2. Bev, I love the aged book cover approach and the image is wonderful. The sprig of plant life gives a magic touch. In other words, perfection!! Gorgeous artwork.

  10. How wonderful is that "vintage" book cover?!! Looks like it's a real book to be uncovered in a musty used book store. This is a beautiful work of digital art.

  11. Bev, I love the idea of the book cover. Your vintaage mom and daughter are precious. I found a pic of my husband's great-great someone in a long dress feeding the chickens. Now, getting the hem of that one clean would certainly be a challenge, wouldn't it?

  17. I wanted to comment on one of your art pieces but I have on most. I selected this one (don't know how I missed it before), but I did. It is so excellent...love the way you have presented it and your note about the glad irons (aka flat irons)..maybe you know why they were also called glad irons? Your artwork is always gorgeous and I hope you will read the note at my blog, Bev. Hugs, Gayle.
