happy father's day

This project is a gift from daughter to father on Father's Day.  The art is authentic vintage postcards (not reproductions) of the Greetings From... variety.  I would say these are from the 40s or 50s, souvenirs from early Interstate travel by car.

The client and I were on the same page regarding design.  They should totally be done as a float collage with photo corners for that antique scrapbook look.

 I cannot take credit for the layout--the client came up with this clever one.  I love how CA and NJ are mirror images and of course MD is over VA.

We chose a great robin's egg blue backing mat, used spacers, and put it all in a weathered VT frame.
