Through Her Eyes

I’m participating in an artist collaboration where we made something inspired by a diary one of the artists found in an antique shop. Inside this gorgeous journal are pages and pages of hand-written memories of a woman, almost 100 years ago.  As I read through it I began to wonder about her life. Who was she? What was her life really like?  She seemed to be a very happy person with a very active social life. It appeared she was a college student and had many friends and interested suitors. And so we created pieces in her memory, using her experiences and words as inspiration.

I printed off some of the pages and aged them a little. I wanted to use her actual handwriting in the piece. I added a lot of epherma that I felt would really reflect that time period. I also added lots of lace, pearls, and photos.
