Memories

I created this piece for Illustration Friday's topic of the week: memories. It is a take off of what I did last week for "routine". The two topics seem connected as routine is a big part of what makes up memories: "the little things". I found this photo along with vintage unmarked children's workbooks at an estate sale (yes I was jumping for joy). The toys on the left of my piece are from one of those precious books.

I love that the photo here contains three different perspectives and thus three sets of memories. The baby looking up, the young boy looking down at the baby and the photographer looking down on both. A memory captured.

p.s. thanks to all of you who have stopped by here and a special thanks for comments left behind. I can't tell you how much your comments mean to me...I love hearing what you are thinking! Happy Labor Day weekend!

Beautiful found objects and great layout. The buttons really show off the charming small scale.
