I had the great fortune of finding a relatively affordable vintage ledger on eBay, this is the first time I've used it. I did the background with that and some pink flourish scrapbook paper. I then took the vintage photograph and transferred a laser print onto the background (gel medium transfer). I topped that off with some Basic Grey rub-ons. I was thinking how the old and the new come together in layers here. Also, that I used to get really frustrated when my images didn't transfer perfectly; now I like it better when they don't.
I get these goofy little sentences from a vintage typewriting textbook; they are typing exercises. I think they're kind of offbeat and cool, even if or maybe because they have nothing to do with the image.
