Trying something new: Float Mount, S-Hinge

I have some wonderful pictures of cats from the the Elf Book “Snuggles: A Real Live Animals Book”, published by Rand McNally, 1958. 

I am going to make a journal from the part of the cover I can salvage, it is pretty chewed up, and these pictures look like they might have had some moisture damage at some point, though they do not smell and the colors are bright.

I decided to try to do the S-Hinge, so you can see the edges of the paper, to reference that it is from a book, but worthy of framing and hanging up. This is what I came up with today. I am mulling it over._DSC0008

This is really a cute picture. We are not going to think that the cats might be uncomfortable positioned like this._DSC0009For sale soon on my Etsy site, GotchaChaCha.

About Gotcha Cha Cha

Hello, I am making this blog to complement my store on Etsy. I sell "found" art and lovely illustrations from unusable vintage books. I also love my 2 cats (Lupe and Cha Cha, hence the inspiration for the store/blog name) and one dog (Daisy a beagle), not to mention my 2 school age daughters, and my husband who can draw anything and does that for a living.
