Yesterday I decided it was high time to start using all the bits and pieces I have been collecting for this month's them over at Gingersnaps. I have made a LO for GC93 *Get to Work*
The background paper is from K & Co, I had a whole stack of these lovely papers, and this is the last one, so it was hard for me to actually use it!
The main picture is from a Chicago office at the beginning of the last century.
I have added some vintage pics of a horse drawn bus in England, a gentleman on his way to work in a bowler hat, a man heaving sacks of coal,a man in a balloon - I think this image was a freebie from Dezina World - and on the right side, the elderly man with the stick is my great-great Uncle taken in Berlin in the 1920's. The telephone is a picture I printed, cut out, and glazed with glossy accents to make it nice and shiny. I used a crumpled up tag for the title, and that was it.
I won several auctions for stamps on EBAY last weekend, and one batch arrived yesterday - among them the 2 I have used here for these tags. I left them just black and white, as I thought this was most effective for the style of the stamps. The others will be shown bit by bit. I just don't know the manufacturer of the stamps, pity, as I like them very much.
The owl tag has some added hand doodling and a verse running round the edge . *A wise old owl sat on an oak, the more he heard, the less he spoke; the less he spoke, the more he heard - why can't we be like that wise old bird?*
Jan - thanks a lot! It is so fascinating to be able to sit here and watch these wonderful birds in my own home, just great. And this tag is dedicated to them. I kept both the tags very simple ( still under the influence of *Less is more*!) and am entering them into the *Black and White* Challenge over on *Theme Thursday*
So, I'm off to watch those Eagles again....Have a great day, and thanks for looking!
