Flashback Friday- Going Vintage
Hello! I am so glad you are joining me today for a Flashback! Once again, I've managed to pull out some retired paper and older photos and give them their 'props'. I also had to laugh that once again, the photos are quite fitting for a flashback!
Several years ago, I went on a field trip with DD#1 and her class. There was a community about an hours drive away that held an annual tribute to their settlers roots. Artisans from the area gather to show how things would have be done in the early years of the town's history. They even dress the part! It was wonderful to learn from them and actually see the processes.
Following my latest trend, my layout features a lot of photos so things are very basic. I used strips of Springtime Vintage which fit the theme perfectly and even matched some of the dresses and aprons!
My personal favorite was watching the gentleman make
marbled paper that would have been used as decorative
book binding. Gorgeous designs!!
The tin/silversmith gave the kids lessons on making
punched designs that would be used on lanterns,
pie safe inserts, and other more decorative pieces.
I hope you are inspired to pull out some of your older supplies and maybe even some photos! Just remember that when you use your older items, you make room for new goodies! Now if that doesn't inspire, I don't know what will!! Have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!
