Vintage pages

Started on my family's vintage book....excited and wanted to share. 
Of course, like any project, I just get it going and need to put it assisde for other things.
Maybe one of these days I will post a photo of my beautiful jars full of pickles, they  are sooo pretty.!
Many thanks to my cousin's wife, Christa.  She has done a wonderful job of preserving and helping put captions to photos.

Please enjoy these photographs on canvas.

The tulip images are original photographs, captured at Cox Arbor. in Dayton, Ohio.

Measuring approx. 8 x 10  and embellished with modeling paste and iridescent medium, to create a dimensional look. 
It is so much fun to work with my photographs and turn them into another work of art.

new acrylics on canvas

As mentioned earlier, Designs by Ang is launching into interior spaces.   NOT to be confused with an interior decorator.  (no offense intended to my decorator friends )  :) 

1st of all, a lilttle preview about my artwork and style;  I have a B.F.A. from The Columbus College of Art & Design.  My major area of study included Advertising Design.  However, as my internship came to a completion, I found myself serving as the graphic designer and my associate was responsible for the fine art side of the projects we created together.  These included; posters for The National Aviation Hall of Fame, The Dayton Ballet and Benham's Groove, in Ohio. 

My work has been described as vibrant compositions with intense use of color and regard for design. 

Please enjoy some recent works...............................

Thank you for taking a look.

aaawwwwww Baby notebooks

Thought it would be a nice switch-up to change gears.
A new month is upon us this week. My oldest son will be 13 ! my 1st teenager, (eeeek)?!??... So it is time for a mother to reflect on her 1st born. What I remember the most besides how adorable and tiny at 6 lbs. he was is how he was my little buddy, especially when he began to walk & talk.
So I though I would present some journals this week starting of course with the 'baby' theme.
I have designed and created many journals, large and small for any and all occasions. A baby journal is the perfect gift for a new Mom to record all those special little moments. Remember how they want you to keep track of all the 'wet diapers' and a feeding schedule.?.... at least that is what I did alot of.

Small journals; measure 3 x 5, sell for $6.00
Large journals; measure 6 x 9, sell for $12.00

remaining teacher scrapbook pages

all the photo images to go with the following teacher scrapbook

finishing the teacher scrapbook

Well, it has been more that a week, shame on me.!
So in an effort to get caught up, I would like to add the remaining pages from the teacher scrapbook produced for my daughter's !st grade teacher.
Many teachers, especially for the younger grades like to put together a book of memories. My idea was proposed in an effort to save time for the teacher. I designed and produced the pages as I would for an 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbook, then I had a nice quality multiple color copies made on a bit heavier paper. She paid me for the copies and asked each parent to provide a binder for their child. It worked out very nicely, each finished product was individual to the child.

a simple 'add-on'

My desire to show details calls to me when I add this image to enhance the view of the one to follow, (which we all know was posted earlier, funny how that works, isn't it.? Ha.! :)

Teacher's scrapbook

Today, I will begin a series of scrapbook pages created for a my daughter's 1st grade teacher. I created a single design for each title as specified. Then, color copies of each were made, she adhered photos and whaa-la....... ta-daaa....... a 1st grade keepsake was created.!
Appropriate to the season, I will begin my series with a winter page.

Functions as a card too!

Here is a part of one of the previous "Winter Wonderland" 8x8 pre-made scrapbook pages shared in an earlier blog this week.
Sometimes before I fill a page with photos, especially smaller pages, I look for a way to crop the design to possibly be used for another application. I am really into coordinating pieces. :)
Please enjoy this interesting frame of reference from a conceived scrapbook page.
