Junk Project: Vintage Photo Album Pages

Have you seen the latest issue of the Somerset Home magazine???  Tracie Lyn Huskamp http://www.thereddoor-studio.blogspot.com/ is featured and is the inspiration for the following project.  I took pages from a vintage photo album I had and instead of framing photos I framed embellished vintage music sheets.  Don't you just love the aged patina of this project??  I am loving these pages!!

Bits and pieces of vintage jewelry finish the look.

The following picture is my first attempt using Picassa photo collaging.  I'm in love with this program!!

Have a happy junking weekend everyone!!!

Gorgeous items for inspiration! I will have to try this soon. I have a vintage black belt with the rhinestone buttons almost just like the one you used. Or is it a choker? I can't imagine anyone being that skinny as the one I have! lol

Oh, so cute! I'm thinkin' sheet music is good for just about anything! I know I'm going to be using more of it!

Janis, You are most definitely reigning Queen of all things lovely and beautiful. Such fabulous eye candy. How about giving us some classes on how to make one of these? Sign me up!
I have been using Picnik for photo editing but I heard Picasa was great too.

Hi Janis,
Holy cow, I LOVE it!!! I just scored a ton of vintage sheet music last week, and I plan on framing mine, too. What are you using to frame them? It almost looks like a mat, but whatever it is, it's GORGEOUS.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog, please be a regular there. I plan on popping in on you often!

D'oh, never mind. I just went back and saw that you used a vintage photo album to frame it. Reading comprehension Annie, practice it. ;-)
