Scroll down and see the ideas that I shared at the Genealogy convention.
Creative Ways of preserving your memories – the stories YOU remember and the stories of others.

Oh the possibilities of this project!
This project was originally created for the members of my art club. I wanted to create a unique way to make and keep a personal journal.
In the process, I began seeing all the other possibilities; such as, a way to share some of the treasured memories of family members.
Hence the name, MEMORY KEEPER. You can create a place for holding stories, thoughts, and pictures of members in your family.
In this digital class I take you along with me, step-by-step as I apply collage and paint to create this shoe.
A Shoe for My Father
This shoe was found in a second hand store. It reminded me of what my father use to wear. Pictures of different events in his life have been collaged around the shoe, with a painted scene of the mountains where he use to live.
