friday: so i was feeling like i was doing my collage of flopsie’s letter a disservice to use elements that were not of the period and i made four new designs using only period based ephemera. for the text i used a book that was published in 1888, from a story called “a love story in reverse”, the images are from a 1910 LIFE magazine and the envelope goes with the handwritten letter from flopsie to george. the only thing not old is the tissue paper. it needed some color. the early 1900s were not so colorful in print. 

i feel a little better now.
