Tribute to my Mom's Family




I was thinking about family after looking through some older photos that I have and thought I would put together a collage. I used pictures of my grandparents, my mom, and my 2 uncles, and then I copied them onto cardstock. I put together other papers and "findings" from my art room, and came up with this collage. The picket fence is rusted metal and a lid from a tea jar was used, too. The verse in the lid reads, "find a nice gal and settle down." The verse under my grandparents' picture reads, "Side by side, our life together is full." My grandparents were married on January 1st, 1934. I am very fortunate to have these photos and wanted to do something special with them!!
