I have started another new art journal! I have been trying to add more elements to it - various papers, embellishments, memorabilia. I have collected quite a few vintage images, and I though it would be fun to put them to use.

This was a copy of a vintage photo. I gessoed over the top of it, and then altered it - completely changing the look. Lots of fun!
