Altered Photos

Photo Bundle
Altered Photos
Last year when I visited my sweet friend Margie in Toronto she took Sonia & me treasure hunting at the St. Lawrence Flea Market and I bought this little bundle of photos of Ottawa. I love the aqua color of the packaging and had to add it to my vintage ephemera collection. I finally had the chance to do something with them! I'll be altering one photo every day for the next nine days. I'm painting directly on the 3.5 x 2.5 black & white photos with FW Acrylic inks and my usual size 0 liner brush.

***I'm so excited to be going back to visit Margie in a few weeks!
I will be doing a one day stamp carving workshop at our friend Arounna's shop Boohkou.
There are still a couple of spaces available in case you want to join us. 
I'd love to meet you if you're in the neighborhood!

The St Lawrence Market is the best! I look forward to going there at Christmas when I visit my daughter. Cute idea with the mini snaps!

How much I'd give to meet you & Margie (and Arounna & Nicole) again ... sigh ...
I LOVE the way you altered this photo, and the aqua box was obviously waiting for you. ♥

Hola Geninne!
Hoy me ha llegado tu libro! Qué emoción cuando lo he visto. Está chulo, chulo, chulo!!
Quería preguntarte qué marca de Rubber Carving block usas. Yo uso SpeedyCarve de SpeedBall, pero es muy fina y siempre tengo que montar los sellos en madera. Veo que la que tu utilizas es más gruesa. Aquí en España no es que se encuentre fácilmente ninguna marca, así que suelo pedirlo por Internet.
Felicidades por el libro!!
Un beso muy grande desde Barcelona,

Your book just arrived from Amazon. It is so beautiful! From start to finish - every little detail is perfect. Going to put the kettle on now for a cup of tea and enjoy reading through it at a more leisurely pace - rather than just devouring it with my eyes!
Well done you!

Love what you did to the pictures, but I just have to ask... Did you by any chanse scan those photos first?? I have been looking for vintage pictures of Ottawa, I live here and just would like to see what it looked like before (this city has changed a lot and not all for the better : (

Lovely paintings though, as always!!!

Gennine, I have been peeking at your blog for a long time. It just makes me so happy every time i do. I LOVE nature but birds especially. My Nanna Violet's nickname was Sparrow! She flitted here there and everywhere and gave a lot of love to her family.
I live in Australia. Have you ever seen Australian birds like the kookaburra, emu and our carolling magpie ? I'd love to know if you have ever painted them? I would be happy to send you a book or two if you would like.

My 3 year old grandaughter loves birds and always tells me she wants to fly and fly and fly - I think she may have some of my Nanna Violet's spirit :))
