Cut Old Photographs to Make New Art

It all began with a pile of forgotten photos…

I stumbled across these particular pictures in a manila folder under my bed, which was where I had stashed them, because at the time, they reminded me of a sad season in life.  But there is a time for mourning and a time for moving on, and it didn’t feel symbolic enough to just throw the pictures out.  I wanted to memorialize the strength and courage that I learned in that chapter, so this is how I reworked my cast-aside pictures into something new and meaningful.

 Here is an alternate way that I cut pictures for a scrapbook page!
