Altered people


Sometimes I feel really bad because
families sell their ancestors pictures.

And sometimes...
I'm really glad they do!





I had so much fun making these!....

Vintage Inspiration for today








What can I say?...

These are great. I really like the fun sayings that you added to each of them. I love vintage cabinet cards and altered some for Christmas last year. They are very fitting for a little Halloween alteration!

What fun you had and they have a new introduction to others, a rebirth!!!!

Pam said...

What fun. I feel bad when I see the ancestor photos being sold also, but you made them fun again. Great job.

Sue said...

You and your "altered people"! The past two days, I have brought one or two up to the counter at Country Roads only to return it back to your space. Why? I keep telling myself I don't need anymore Halloween stuff! But you and I both know one of those "altered peeps" of yours is going to being sitting in my Halloween display at my house this year!

Take care, Sue

Such a great idea! I've got so many ancestor photos, and I wouldn't DREAM of selling them! Can you imagine???

I'll have to do some of these--thanks for the inspiration!

Okay ~ You've inspired me. I think I'll just start by scanning my vintage photos first. Im still not brave enough to use the really good ones. Yours look so great all "dolled up" for Halloween.

What a hoot! We thought about putting horns and a gotee on "uncle august!"

This is a really fresh take on the altered photos and witches hats. LOVE THESE. Old photos and cabinet cards just fascinate me. Loved the black carrier with "fall" painted on it from your last post. I'd love to see photos of your booth space from Country Roads!!
Thanks for joining in tonight!
xo,
Debra

I don't know why people sell their relatives. Great for us that love to create with the images though.
Great cards.
Thanks for sharing.

Oh these are so neat! You have given me some fantastic ideas! I have some new christmas bingo cards--these images would be great to add christmas embellishments to pictures of strangers, not mine.

I like adopting ancestors too-love what you've done with yours!
Hope you'll stop by art party and enter my Halloween giveaway!

Robin said...

Cute and fun. well done.

Suz said...

What can I say...those are just incredibly clever...both artistically and linguistically (in other words, they are hysterically funny!) You are already on my reader. I am blog hopping tonight...there is no end to great things on the internet.

Come and visit our blog, if you wish. We are a mom and daughter who make repurposed jewelry, but find that is covered very rarely in our journal. Right now we are in Croatia for our exchange student son's wedding. Such a special time!

Well right now I'm thrilled that this family sold their loved ones. You made them look soooo great for the holiday! Best time they've ever had, I'll bet!

What a good idea. It's a fun way to remake old photos :)

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

I just love all of these, Marcela. So clever and funny! A perfect touch to add to the house for Halloween decorating.

Italian Girl in Georgia said...

These are so funny! Your creativity is endless Marcela.

Ciao bella,

I always enjoy your altered art, so creative.

Wanda @ Just Vintage said...

Those are great! And Ghouls Night Out? Too perfect. I'm planning a girls night out at the shop in October and have been trying to think of a good name for it. I'm the worst at thinking up things like that. Would you mind terribly if I copy you? On the name?

Olive Cooper said...

Just the right spark of Halloween whimsy!

Terri said...

Oh these are fun! I love what you have done to breathe new life into these people.
Hugs,
Terri

the way youve altered and embelished the old photos is fantastic. have seen similar attempts- yours should be published.
I am on Autumn Art Party too...
