Soldered Charm - Grandma Astroth, circa 1914

My printer was running out of ink as I printed this photo but I loved the distressed look it added. This piece is made from 2 microscope slides. March 2006

Thanks to my cousin Linda for another opportunity to create a shadow box. I tried a simple, but new technique, to make the photos of the house look old. Using Printmaster, I sized the photos to what I needed, converted them to black & white, and then added tiny text (month/date) on the right edge like photos once were printed. The finishing touch was inking the edges black and adding photo corners. March, 2006
