I and my Bucket


I scanned one of my favorite things- a beautiful Victorian Book cover for this piece. I was aMazED at how the printed image turned out as beautiful as the original! I heart my scanner!!

If I lived in the 1800's this would be my scrapbook layout ;)!!

I found the precious little photos at a antique shop just out of Topsham ME. They originals are sooo light you can barely see the little girl. Enhanced them using picasa. Wow!! I heart my picasa!

A few weeks ago at a yard sale, came across an antique album w/ these beautiful, vintage blue, worn pages/ frame mats. Got the album for a song and a dance...ok those of you who know me know I CAN"T dance...so just a song!!

This project was done for the MPTS design challenge Try the September challenge on MPTS and see what you can come up with!

If you like the pics I used...I have digital copies for sale in my etsy store, Lulah Hildebrandt...for a song and a dance...please stop by! More beautiful vintage images to come!

If you are not a member of MPTS forum yet...check it out! The best scrap book/ altered art forum I have come across...and they just keep on improving it and making it even better. And the talent is amazing. My favorite part is the challenges!

I love your collages. They have so much that it takes a while to see everything. Great work!
