Camembert No. 2

Camembert No. 2
I found these great paper dolls and I love how stiff they look.  This postcard took on many "lives" until I found the Camembert labels.  Then everything fell into place.  I love auditioning ephemera.

You do find the best "stuff",
and then top it with your composition!

HiJohn, loving this new series. A question.......do you always use the real pieces or scan them into your computer and use copies? I'm finding it a dilemma. I have a lot of great images, mostly vintage, and am Nervous of using them straight to journal/ cards........

Hi Jacqueline,

I usually scan and print images on my inkjet. However, I also frequently use originals except for vintage photo that I get at flea markets. I scan those first. One can always scan and then use the original. That way you will always have the image. I recently found some photos at my mother's when cleaning up the house that I am planning on using directly. I have no idea who is in many of them. :-)
