Art Journal Page - "Roots"

A few years ago, my mom gave me a photo album filled with vintage black and white photographs of my relatives.

So, I created an altered book dedicated to making art journal-type pages for these photos. The book is a vintage math book. I tore some pages out and then glued 2 or 3 pages together for sturdiness.
 

 
The only two requirements for my pages in this book is, I want the entire book to have a vintage-y feel and I want each page to have quite a bit of space for journaling. I plan on getting the story behind each photo (if my mom knows it) and adding it to the page.

 
 


This page has a tag that slips behind the photo that I plan to journal on all about the photo. Right now all I know is (I think) the man in the photo is my great grandfather. I want to not only include dates and locations, but if my mother knows a little story or antidote about the person in the photo, I want to include that as well.
