I received two yummy things in the mail today. I had won a amazing Victorian photo album on e-bay and it came with a few photos and I got some vintage crepe paper from the adorable shop Junque Art. I just happened to set them down on a old book and thought, "wow those look neat together." and tada "American Boy" collage was born. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Isn't he so handsome? Of course I had to make a story to go with it:
This is Emerson. He is seventeen and going to the annual 4th of July picnic. He's taking a huge bouquet of Lilacs (Victorian meaning for lilacs is first love) for the girl he hopes will be his.Her name is Amalia. All of his friends teased him about his tie but he thinks its just the thing to catch her eye. Good luck Emerson!
Yes I know I'm odd. Or maybe just too sentimental.
