{old friends}

i purchased the most beautiful vintage paper pack from pam garrison the other day. it was such a lovely surprise to have my envie already waiting at my door when i got home from work. pam is amazing anyway, but i was so shocked to see how BEAUTIFUL the envelope was. she posted a little peek here. she hand drew our addresses and added a sweet little bird illo. so splendid. i couldn't wait to use my paper and this is what i ended up creating.

it's on 5" x 7" canvas. the floral wallpaper and ledger paper (that i used for flower) were in the vintage paper pack. the cutout, white, fluffy wallpaper is from my grandma's house. the birdy and that sweet image of the little girls is from hannah grey. and those beautiful black plastic buttons with rhinestones were given to me by my MIL from her parent's sewing kit. pretty fabulous, eh? i love artwork full of history. like an old friend.
