AJ Wk 35- Strength & TMTA - Men

AJ prompt for this week, Strength. I admit I usually like my cards to have pictoral references to each prompt but somehow this paper from DCWV, Far East just spoke to me. It reminded me of flow charts & training workshops. I cut blocks out, wrote a word on each & then atttached them with foam tape to raise them like bricks in a wall. The arrows lead the eye down.
Below is my entry for the TMTA challenge, Men.
The men are my Grandfather & my Father as a boy.
I found this old corn merchant receipt on Vintage Resources & thought it pefect as we were a farming family back then. I inked & distressed all the edges. Paper is DCWV, Olde Worlde.

I had a giggle at teh flow chart it took me back. But I like how you used it on the ATC. I really like how you used the photos of your dad and grandfather on the second one. Great work Paula.

Great ATC, Paula - it must be really satisfying to use you own old photos. I don't have any!
