this is my new inspiration for Finnabair Creative Team.
As you probably know, I really like to use old family photos in my projects. Recently, I came across some photos that inspired me to create this new mixed media collage. I chose two photos of my family members I never had the chance to meet, they date back to 1930s or 40s. I didn't use the original images, instead I scanned and printed them.
I think many of you know those tiny pieces of wood that come with every new canvas. Don't throw them away! They can be amazing for creating an interesting background or a original embellishments for your projects. You will see how I used them in my video below.
The papers and add-ons I used come from a beautiful new 7 Dots Studio collection - Writer's Block.
I hope you feel inspired by my new project. I know many of you love vintage photos just like I do. Each of them carries its own stories, so precious, especially nowadays when we tend to take thousands of photos... I think they deserve a special creative treatment. :)
