Theme Thursday

Theme Thursday's theme this week is Vintage Women ATCs. And since I've been creating atc's for my upcoming art cruise, I thought I would participate.

The majority of the atc's that I've been making for the cruise swaps are created using mostly ladies from an old 1953 (the year I was born!) Sears Catalog. I have also made some using Sears kids from the catalog and even a few of the fellas.

Didn't think to make copies of the pages before using the originals, so each one features an original cutout from the catalog. Note to self: make copies if I ever find another one of these vintage catalogs! Sheeeesh, what was I thinking?

Wonderful ATCs, even more precious as they are the originals too! That is a bevy of beautiful babes AND hey, 1953 is not THAT old ;)

Love your ATC's....especially the young man who doesn't do cute:)
(I rarely bother to scan myself. I just figure how many of these images do I really want to work with?)

These are very cool! What a great idea to use the catalog! (My cruise ATCs don't have a particular theme. I think I should have come up with one! LOL)

I have to say, I always feel torn about whether or not to scan. I almost feel that using stuff up somehow makes it more "original." That's kind of silly considering there's probably the same image multiple places out there. I really should scan, huh?
