I wanted to share another project from Nancy Maxwell James' online class "Smitten". This is a hanging canvas built around a cabinet card. I found my cabinet card in a local antique shop this past summer in a basket with a whole bunch of other paper ephemera. I picked it up because I loved how the baby was smiling and on the back, written with a lovely script, were all the details about Gladys Fidelia Davenport born March 22, 1897. It listed her age, height and weight at the time the picture was taken and her parents' names. From the same basket I also purchased a handful of letters tied together with a ribbon because I liked the envelopes and postmarks and the script and thought I could use them in collages. Once I got them home, I realized that all the letters were written to the grown up version of the little Gladys of the photo! There were letters from friends and even some romantic letters from her husband-to-be. Needless to say, with that much known history I have not used the original cabinet card (or letters) - I scanned it and mounted it to bookboard after printing making a pretty reasonable facsimile of my cabinet card if I say so myself!
