I was commissioned to create a collage for a client. This client wanted to give a gift to her cousin for Christmas and she wanted to have a personalized collage using vintage photos that she had in a family album. To get the flavor of the people in the photos I interviewed my client and found out that one woman loved to collect irons. I wanted to include as many of the photos in the collage as I could and I needed a way to express some of the ideas and keep the composition from becoming overwhelmed with different focal points. I came up with the idea of creating a stamp with an iron to represent the woman's collection. Since the woman loved to go to garage sales, the stamp was given a title of "Garage Sales Forever". Tomorrow I will share the collage with this stamp.
