Faded Memories

If you've ever wondered what to do with any old photos' or  memorabilia that you have stashed away in the bottom of a photo drawer at home, why not put some of it together to make a Memory Collage. You can create beautiful designs to display in your home or give to a loved one as a very special gift.

Here I have created a collage totally out of fabric, lace and trim, with an old key and watch face thrown in for good measure.  The photograph and documentation page have both been printed onto cotton fabric for this particular piece.
And once complete I have framed the finished piece by mounting it onto black cardstock surrounded by a complimentary fabric and then framed in a black wooden frame without the glass so that the viewer of the piece is tempted to touch and feel the various fabrics and memory pieces.
