Mixing Postcards and Photos

I don't know about you, but I am a postcard collector. When I visit a new place, I can't resist the urge to grab a card or two pertaining to the tourist spot. In this layout, I used a photo I took coupled with a postcard I found that shed some light on what daily life at Alcatraz was like.

I used a variety of products in this layout (Studio Calico, Thickers, Basic Grey and Jillibean Soup to name a few), which is the advantage of using black and white photos. Anything will go with it. In this case, I used a darker color pallet. Since this was about the prison, I resisted embellishing it and kept it rather plain.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love how the black and white pic pops on the red! That mix of all caps with all lower case letters is fantastic - will have to remember this so I can lift it!

  2. Love the colors and light embellishment, both of which really do capture the "mood" of your subject. I'm with Suzanna - love the mix of lower case and caps as well. Great job!
