Here we are at week 7 already of this cool Compendium of Curiosities Challenge! Where does the time go!
The photo is of my grandpa Wilfred who I never knew because he passed away before I was born. It is really so unfortunate, because we were so much alike in our love of the arts! He was about 4 yrs old in this picture and I just loved him holding the flag and sporting the very stylish white fur coat and beret.
A happy accident colored the sepia flag in just the right spot to make it appear red white and blue! I swear I didn't plan it.
I used a wood mount stamp from the dollar bin at the LCS, idea ology star trinket, token, clip and jump ring.
The lace was from my stash along with the piece of old dictionary paper from my friend Ellen. Was so excited that one page had the word star on it! How perfect! I love when things just fall into place creatively. :)
The red ribbon was also from my stash and distressed it with Black Soot and Vintage Photo Distress ink.
I used Black Soot, Faded Jeans, Fired Brick and Vintage Photo Distress inks to create the tag.
The script stamp on the tag is from Club Scrap's Collections kit.
The brown paper is also from Club Scrap.
Thanks for looking!
