Imagery; elegance, age, and beauty.

After talking during my discussion of my imagery- We decided that the catalogs and more mature prints will represent the mother whereas this book that I have from the 60s called "Science is Learning" a children's book, will be the daughter. The more playful images and the "old school colors" really go with my vintage feel. The playful images and bright colors create the idea of youthfulness. I coffee stained my paper which produced a perfect aged look to my paper.
Finding the imagery was kind of difficult. I think once I start really cutting out circles and putting it all together it will all merge as one.

Decisions: To age the dots like the paper?
 -Age them before glueing or after?
 - the effect of the liquid to the paper, creates warping and shrinkage... 
-So I am probably going to cut all of my paper at once so
 it all has even and smooth lines.
Cover: I  really want the cover to resemble the cover of an old vintage book. 
With the old vignette frame looking frame and the text inside. 
I have some old sheet music, and  covers that 
show great framing that I want and could
 possibly print onto my cover paper.
