Art Journal Page - "Our Memories"

This is a page out of my Vintage Altered Book that I am using to house my old family photos. I am scanning the originals and putting the copies in my book.

This is a photo of my Grandparents with my mother. My mother was even able to tell me the exact address of the house they are standing in front of. I asked her where she thought they were going because my Grandmother is carrying her purse and my mom has a dress on. My grandmother never drove, so they must have been going to walk somewhere because it looked like my grandfather wasn’t dressed to go anywhere. My mom wasn’t sure, so I asked her if she had any story I could include with the photo. She told me that my grandmother walked to the grocery store to do her shopping every Saturday morning, rain or shine. She also told me she would wait for her to get back because my grandmother always brought her back comic books.
 
These are exactly the types of stories I want to include in this album. I was pleased all around withhouse this page came out. Be sure to check out the process video!

  1. What a wonderful page and memory. I am constantly talking about my grandparents and aunt to my daughter. Often I wonder when I'm come will they remember the stories as all of my family except my passed before they were born. I should start a book of memories. Well I am older, age 67, and women and children never worn pants/jeans or slacks so I'm thinking your grandparents and especially your mother are in my age group/era. We always went to the market with mother, my sister and I in pretty dresses, lacy socks/black leather maryjane's, gloves and Mom in a beautiful 1950's dress complete with stockings and high heels. Looks like your picture. Cherish the memories. Thanks for sharing.
