PHOTO CHALLENGE

Welcome back everyone - and thanks again for your amazing support, suggestions and comments which we've taken on board. This month we have another guest challenger; our lovely friend Jaqi http://jaqi-scrapbookinginmysleep.blogspot.com/
Last week she emailed some wonderful old photos for me to look at which had been found recently in a garage. They are thought to have belonged to Jaqi's great grandfather who was a photographer. She thinks this is a photo of her great aunt Rosina who owned the local bakery in Boldon.
I suggested to Jaqi that this would make a great challenge.....to use this image in our artwork.

Jaqi has created a lovely 12"x 12" scrapbook layout.......



I made a transfer of the picture (using gel medium) on a 5"x 5" chunky canvas then collaged around it ....

.......and Rosie used the image to create a page for a little board book she's making (and made up a story around the picture - as Rosie loves to do!)

(To see more pictures of our work, please visit our individual blogs.)
Thanks to Jaqi for inspiring our challenge..........we hope you'll join in and have a go!
Copy the image to any size you like and make something in any medium that inspires you.
Can't wait to see the results....
