Assemblage Art--Color- shades of blue--Vintage materials--This is celebrating love and family during the first world war CIRCA 1919-- Measures-14"L x 9"W--This art piece has some wonderful vintage finds--. > I started with a blue vintage book cover, over which I applied vintage sheet music. Then I added a page from a antique photo album, I used antique looking art paper. AT THE TOP-- is a rusty, vintage drawer pull. AT THE BOTTOM-- is a tattered fragment from the front of a antique blouse, with original buttons. ON THE RIGHT-- -- is vintage lace taken from a old pillowcase, it is laced with the blue silk from the same blouse. AT THE CENTER-- is a vintage dish ,with sheet music and photocopy of a young couple. AT THE TOP-- of the dish is the best of all, a remnant from a pure silk ( CIRCA 1919 ) hankie. Most likely this silk hankie was sent to a sweetheart by a soldier in France, during the first world war. A souvenir, professing his love. ZOOM IN --You can see at the bottom of the flags, some of the original embroidery "To My Dear". Sweetheart". AT THE BOTTOM-- is a sweet little vintage baby shoe laced with organza ribbon. Inside, is a baby with lace angel wings and a scrap from the sleeve of the same blue blouse,mentioned earlier. GO UP TO THE TOP -- and you will see a rusty chain with the wire latch, salvaged from a antique mason canning jar, for hanging. All new materials have been carefully aged. .
