The one about Vintage Children


This week's art deck challenge was Vintage Children.

I had been working with this image I cut from a 1968 Sears catalog from eBay. I bought the 1968 catalog because I was born that year and I wanted something as old as I am. One of my favorite things to do is see how things have changed over the years.

I used some of my favorite paper for the background: the original line of Foof-a-la papers. Stamps by Purple Onion Designs.

This is very sweet. I was born in 1968 too! It cracks me up to up see clothes from when we were babies and even more to see kids going back to wearing the junk we wore in high school!!
