VINTAGE CHILDREN

A vintage journal to enter in Mixed Media Monday challenge. These are very vintage children, they are sisters actually. I know the children to be vintage for they are my mother and her sister. I made the journal using vintage wallpaper to cover the new journal, a copy of an image from my personal collection and cutouts of tiny little birds. The lace and trim is also vintage, (scraps from vintage wedding gowns). I LOVE vintage!!
Be sure to visit http://mixedmediamonday.wordpress.com/ for more "vintage children" challenges. Thanks for stopping by.
