Digital Collage

                                                               

Hello Everyone, nice that you have popped in to Jumbled Crafts today and I always appreciate your comments and thoughts.

This week the theme at Three Muses is Vintage Family


I used family photographs of my paternal grandfather and grandmother with their father's on either side and a brother of my grandmother in the middle.

All of the photographs of my grandmother's family were in poor condition and I don't recall every seeing any of them until recently when an aunt sent me copies of them. I am sure they have a story to tell as there was always mystery surrounding the family. I suppose I could delve into the past and try to find out more but I am not sure I want to solve the mystery it may not be as interesting as my imagination.

Have a wonderful day. 

Love Chrissie xx

So glad I caught this -- one of my favourites of your digi makes ever! Love how it draws the eye inward and the family photos are wonderful. I'd stick with your imaginary histories for them - they can get up to anything then!!
