Barbara's Journal: The Cover Design, Pocket Inserts and a Census Page

DearREADERS, In this recording, Myrt designs a cover for Barbara's Journal using a circa 1937-1939 image of Barbara, a wood cutout frame, some cheesecloth, lace and a 3-D silk flower. Two tuck spots are embellished to note mix and match contrast of colors among the paper, ribbon and lace. Genealogists like documents from the time period an ancestor lived that may indicate a family relationship. This time Myrt features a 1930 US population schedule where Barbara is "1 6/12" years of age. DearMYRTLE is making custom journals to share with her children and grandchildren, personal and family history anecdotes and documents in an intriguing manner. See 52 THINGS located here:
