TITLE: Reader Rock Gardens
SWAP: Vintage Spring/ ATC'S FOR ALL
I researched Historic Houses in the Calgary area from at least 85 years ago to make the sources Vintage. Calgary was only declared a city -of 4000 souls- in 1884; so most Vintage homes are of the 1885-1925 era.
Couldn't help throwing in a famous cowboy's homesteader's cabin about 150 km from Calgary, though!
I also tried to match the era of the house with flora and fauna that would likely have either naturally grown or been planted in the area at the time.
I designed the cards digitally in layers; then printed the underlying house layers on adhesive cotton that went over a base of a green floral print which I had distressed.
A layer of waxed paper went under a transparency printed with a floral overlays.
Constructing a card that way is quite new to me; so I've learned a bit from the experience..know better what to do next time around!
AS OF APRIL 30, 2010 , THERE IS STILL SNOW ON THE GROUND HERE...WE WERE HIT BY A SLEET STORM THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY, AND SNOW YESTERDAY MORNING!
