A souvenir is from the French, for a remembrance of a memory. Are you like most people and just stick them in drawers or in albums?
However, there is a way to enjoy them and share them with your friends. Below is an example of a collage I did for my niece. She kept all her ticket stubs through the years.
This collage was placed in a memory box, which allowed me to layer the tickets and make them more visible. If you look closely, you will see a ticket stub from The Rolling Stone, one from a concert in Europe, and even the wrist band from a live taping of Conan O’Brien! Can’t you just imagine one of tickets from major sporting events adorning a man cave?
A collage can be made using souvenirs of a major event or a trip. Here is one made from my niece’s year spent in Europe.
How about a collage made from memories? My father rebuilt pianos. Here is a collage I made based on that, using some of his notes on piano tuning. When I see this, I have wonderful memories of my father in the basement happily working on pianos.
Do you have “stuff” stuck in drawers. Most of the time, this “stuff” means something to you. Get it out! I would love to help you put it in a form that can easily be displayed and shared! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
