EDM Challenges 21, 22 & 31
These are all separate drawings of items in a collection of family memorabilia combined into one image created in photoshop. The dress is a christening gown originally worn by my sister...and then me. The clip in the lower left is really pretty, but I haven't identified whose it was...or the story behind it yet. The postcard collection, bound by wooden panels & metal screws, was my mother's. The little snapshot mini album has a leather cover with grommets and a very fragile string holding it all together. The photos inside are from my maternal grandmother's family, as is the small, framed portrait in the upper left corner. I have boxes of postcards, photos and letters, many of which were sent by friends and relatives while they served during WWII. I submit this entry to satisfy the "clothing", "antique or vintage items" and "collection" challenges.
