How about a whole family shot? Often the dead person was propped up or put on a stand and their eyes were painted in later. As keeper of the family archives on both sides, I actually thought I had a few of these, but upon further investigation, I guess a lot of my family just wasn't that photogenic. LOL No question here who the dead ones are. The coffins sort of give that away. Bummer it's a twofer. Sooo sad. I did make the fab mat for this which reminded me of many of my vintage photos. I used the Cuttlebug Gracie's Frame folder with Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection card stock and sanded it after using a craft knife to cut out the inside. Looks just like some of my real antique mats.
Or just the kids? Don't they look thrilled? Couldn't resist the title, done with my Dymo.
The photo album and camera are from Graphic 45. Added a dried rose that could have been part of a funeral bouquet. Don't know if you can read the rest of the title, but it says "and say cheese". I really edited the photos I found on the net. Some were either too heart wrenching or just plain gross. I got a kick out of how pissed this little girl looks having to pose with her dead brother. Her look says "Are we done yet?" Wondering if it was starting to smell like cheese (limberger, I'd bet) in there since I'm pretty sure this was before embalming was popular. Okay, I could go on and on about this but I'll release you to the rest of the Minions HERE to see what exactly they find vile and can't wait to see how you interpret our Vile Vintage Challenge.
