Here’s my interpretation of the quote and sketch for the October Once Upon a Sketch Challenge.
I’ve incorporated an actual negative from a 35mm camera in my sketch. Fortunately for me the color of the negative blended in well with the 7 Dots Domestic Goddess paper collection. I didn’t realize it at the time I opened the kit package, because I was in awe over all the pinks and oranges in the papers and embellies, but there were a number of yellow elements to choose from too and I separated them from the kit and put them aside. The theme of the OUAS challenge and papers and embellies came together really well, I thought. “Walkies” were common in the 1920’s throughout the 1950’s in England. There were street photographers that would take pictures of unsuspecting subjects going about their daily lives, running errands, visiting fairs and vacationing in beach communities too. These photos depicted fashion at the time, history and social status. The photographer would give you a ticket after they took a picture and if you were interested, you would drop by the studio and pick them up. Here’s one of my unsuspecting grandmother running an errand in England in the 1920’s.
