GOTHIC ARCHES - "Little Boys"
Here's my arch for this week's Gothic Arches theme of little boys:
I scanned and enlarged a very old, faded photo of my dad. He is about 3 years old in the picture; it was taken in 1930. I don't know what he's holding in the photo--it almost looks like a seat pillow of some kind, maybe for the car that is behind him? I wish I knew. Anyway, I printed a copy of the photo, hand-colored it with chalks, and glued it to my background. I added some rub-ons this time, rather than stamping, and there you have it--pretty simple. I so wish I could go back in time to ask him or my grandma about the photo--even better, I wish I could jump into the picture and give that little boy a hug!
