After an Artful Gathering Workshop with Nancy Maxwell, this is my version of
Petite Box & Book.
It's called "Recuerdos" spanish for "Memories". 
A gift for my mother.  Recuerdos of her youth, my dad, sister and myself.
A piece of my Vintage Me Happy Heart I hope she will love.
I love you Mamita del Alma.

Book cover made of canvas board with Webster's Pages Ladies & Gent's
a vintage flower with mom's picture in it, silver plated buttons, seamed binding holding
the pages together and lace ribbons around the covers of each page.

These are charms I made with the tags for a swap I participated
 in for Mini Album Scraps.  Some of the charms and beads were purchased from
 several  Esty shops and Michael's Craft Store.  Feel free to check out the link on my
blog  "Barbara Zinkhan's Shoppe"  for beads etc.  Once you make your first purchase
 you'll come back for more.  I did ! LOL... xo
My first Mixed Media Art on Canvas.  Did this with my friend Maggie at her art studio.
We had a blast painting, cutting, pasting, stamping and rubbing-on things to the canvas.
Time Flies Tag created for a swap
