Saturday Workout - Altered Cabinet Card


This fellow is from a cabinet card of an anonymous ancestor in my great grandmother's photo album. Unfortunately he was not identified. I've given him dreams of Paris, a beret, and a monocle. Who knows - maybe those dreams came true! Thanks for the challenge!

  1. Both the beret and the monocle really suit your handsome ancestor Bev! Wonderful collage and story you've created with it!

  2. Love the monocle! This is a wonderful, vintage piece, Bev. I like your ancestor's colorful attire but somehow I don't think your grandmother would have approved of his foppery. Great work.

  7. He looks rather stern - almost an aristocratic eye through that monocle I love it.
