Mixed Media Monday - Vintage Ads/Labels


My goal with these two fabric journal pages was to recreate the feel of "Grandma's kitchen", the gathering place for family functions. The women would chat as they coordinated the various dishes and the aromas were familiar and comforting....roast turkey, cherry pie, chocolate chip cookies. These pages are my entry for the Mixed Media Monday challenge this week.
