from fabric-paper to paper card

Steven came upon me scanning parts of the huge fabric-paper piece I made and said, "I have to take a couple photos of this!". He thought it was pretty funny because the fabric-paper I made is so big compared to the scanner - it is probably 12 times the size of the scanner! I did have to fold and maneuver the big piece of fabric-paper around to scan it, but it worked and it was so worth it! Now I have some great close-up, hi-res scans that I can use for other things.
Below is a picture of a printed out scan lying on top of the original fabric-paper collage --
If you click on it you may be able to see the photo better - a printed copy is part of the original collage. The photo is of my mom, my grandmothers, and great grandmother at my parent's engagement party in January of 1956.
Today is my parent's 54th wedding anniversary, so I used this section of my large fabric-paper collage with the engagement party photo, scanned and printed onto presentation paper to create this layered card above for my mom & dad. All I did was add a little more color with ink, rubber stamp a couple of words and add a bit of metallic marker. Voila'! Hope you enjoy all this "talk" about my fabric paper collage and all the things I am sure I will do with it!!! lenna young andrews - march 27th, 2010


  1. Your paper quilt is beautiful Lenna. Happy Anniversary to your parents, that is quiet an accomplishment!

    I like that photo in your last post as well-3 men at once, my goodness! :)

  2. I love this LEnna, you are so sweet. Happy Anniversary to your parents.

  3. Good on Steven for taking pictures. It looks amazing to see you wrestling with such a large piece but that does mean that you will have lots to play with, both as far as the actual collage is concerned as well as the saved scans!
