Few months ago, I was invited by Desi to be the guest designer for the challenge blog in Italy.
I will be there for March and have 3 projects in total, this is project number 1 - make a layout with a picture that is not a photo!
I bought these postcards in 2005 while my daughter Clare attended Aspen Music Festival in the summer.
that is a sketch from the notebook of Frederick E. Banbery, award winning British Illustrator. Banbery visited Aspen, Colorado in the mid-19050's, drawing this study in the original Aspen Music Festival and School Tent (1949-1963), that was designed by famed architect Eero Saarinen.
I happened to go there again early September 2013 and took 2 photos at Benedict Tent with my phone to show Clare.
So I finally decided to scrap this postcard I hoarded for a long long time (well, better than keep them in the box right?)
Aspen does bring back a lot of sweet memories....
of my girls.... when they were very young....
of Clare..... having the opportunity to study under Veda (Yoheved Kaplinsky), the music director of The Juilliard School pre-college division.
I will be back soon for the other 2 projects, but for now, hop over to Amiche di Scrap to cheer me on..... just kidding(sort of)....... actually I want you to check out the rest of the DT and their lovely work!
