Inspiration Avenue’s weekly challenge: Altered Ancestors – Actual or Instant.
As my family archive is 1000 of miles away from me I chose an “instant” free image. Well my beloved grandmother use to make her living from sewing dresses for women. From my childhood I remember the fabrics with big flower prints (just don’t remind my age please). And I remember the old sewing machines, you know the type that you need to pedal with the leg… Singer of course… I also remember the big dinning table that was turned to a cutting table in the middle of the week. I don’t really know how much she enjoyed it, but in my eyes she was a hero being able to convert a fabric to a beautiful dress. I lost her in the early 90’s and I miss her a lot. So Bobeleh that’s for you (ikh wal miss ‘du oyf eybik…):
acrylic, permanent marker, altered photo, disstress ink vintage photo, junk yard findings (memories).
