Gingersnap Creations Visiting Artist 3

The Random Redhead Challenge 
at Gingersnap Creations this week is to go back in time to the 
'Last Century'.

I had great fun starting a Glue Book with an old hardback version of  'What Katy Did Next' and using the theme of vintage sewing.

I seem to have collected numerous vintage images and other scraps that I don't want to throw away and thought this would be a good way to use them up.
Do you remember the old Simplicity and Vogue patterns?

For this project though I created some background images using digital files and merged them in PSE, adding other elements to create collage pages.

Sewing is very dear to my heart, although I rarely use the sewing machine with fabric any more, but it was my dear Mum who taught me how to make my own clothes when I was very young. She was a great inspiration, having no formal training herself.

There are some fabulous pieces on the Gingersnaps blog so let's see what you create.

Have a wonderful day.
