A Portrait Series

Three different challenges this month have drawn me to scrap what amounts to a series of portraits. One was for a self-portrait, so you know who is in that one. The web inspiration challenge is based on a fantastic Life Magazine photo of Clark Gable seated in a car reading Gone With the Wind. I think that influenced a photo I took of Dick which then had to be used in my response. Third, I took a photo of my sister last month on her birthday and used it in the last week's AnnaLift. It was surprising to see them all together as it is not my usual style. So here we are.

Journaling reads:
We have furniture and jewelry, tools and kitchen items from the houses of grandparents, parents, even aunts and uncles. Many of them are things we really use. Sometimes it feels like living in a museum. Sometimes it is hard not to feel like another of the antiques! The lion's head rocking chair came from my maternal grandmother. My father had it and refinished it beautifully. Now it is mine.

  1. Great photo of your hubby in the car, the Clark Gable photo inspired a great page, and I love the photo of you and of your sister! Love all the layers of brushes, stamps and elements... All three layouts are fabulous additions to your scrapbook!

  2. All three are wonderful pictures...can't decide which I like the best. The LOs are all very unique and perfect for each photo. I miss doing challenges as they always seem to result in something I wouldn't have done otherwise! Great portrait series.
