mother's day cards, 2011

Revealed! "Margaret-with-Chicken"

I found a vintage photo in with some family memorabilia that inspired this year's Mother's Day card.  Now that the cards have reached their intended recipients, I'm releasing the long form account of the process.  Please enjoy the following pictorial.

fig. 1: Photograph, circa 1920.

fig. 2: Oval shape feels more vintage-y.

fig. 3: For whimsy, added a chicken.

fig. 4: For flair, gold stitching.

fig. 5: Fin.

This project has me thinking about my newly repainted bedroom walls, which are in need of some artwork.  Perhaps a large scale Margaret-with-Chicken is in order?
