Artful Times DT piece -- Arches

On Artful Times the subject is arches. I have started an arch book on my family, and this one is of my Great Grandma, my Nanwith a friend, and my mum with my oldest cousin on her left. No one knew who the little girl was, and all of those generations have now passed away.
The background of the arch is collaged and inked. I added some vintage lace at the bottom, and some flowers and buttons.

This is a wonderful page for your book. It's a shame that we had to learn to post info on photos because other generations didn't.

I love the background you have created for these family photos. I can see you have inherited your family's good looks - your greatgrandmother was a lovely woman. The book is a great idea for displaying these precious photos and so much more interesting than keeping them in a boring album or hidden away in a drawer.

Wonderful piece of history. The distressed vintage background is perfect for these photos.
