Walk Down Memory Lane

The tag challenge the past two weeks at Kard Krazy was to use the word 'Postcard' some where in the tag. I started this project kind of mindlessly, meaning no direction in mind. I layed down a little gesso and went from there.
 The main image is from 'Time to Stamp' with a vintage kind of beach theme. The image is probably from the 50's and made me think of my parents in that time period. I ran with it from there, and made a mock postcard that had been sent to my parents, from their best friends back in the day. The image was tinted with Distress inks.

It ended up being a walk down memory lane for me and evoked wonderful memories of my childhood. I love how the image came out fairly muted, looking old and time worn. Unfortunately, I didn't get it posted for the challenge soon enough.

Hope you have a wonderful week, I know mine will be busy.

I love how this turned out! I like the look the gesso gives the background. I think I have a bottle, I'll have to try this.
