Scrapped Artwork

I began this project in January, but it has taken until now to get my finger out and finish it. The idea behind it is, because we don’t have any family members living where we live, that DS can look at this ‘family album’ daily and put names to faces easily. It is now hanging in the playroom. The inspiration came from a piece in the January 2009 edition of Creating Keepsakes by Suzy Plantamura. She’d made a wall hanging about her goals for getting fit and it was only 2 photos in width. If you’re interested, we have:
Top row ~ DH & me, DS, DH; Middle row ~ Granny, cousin S, Uncle J & Auntie L; Bottom row ~ Uncle L & cousin D, Grandma & Grandpa, Grandma & Auntie L.
(Two Auntie Ls, just to confuse you!)

  1. I think it's a fantastic idea, we had a similar idea with a photo collage of family because some of my family is still in SA. Now that the children are older it's not an issue anymore.

  2. I love this idea, Ruth! When my niece was really little I would send photos of me and DH and DD to her in the mail just to keep ourselves “present” in her life. I think it helps with the shy factor when you finally do get together because the child recognizes and feels the family connection right away.

    Have a great weekend! xo

  3. This is such a lovely project, Ruth 🙂 I've been trying to figure out which side of the family each member comes from!! Is it your Mum on the left of the middle row?
