Retro motifs

This article from the Get It Scrapped blog:

Stefanie Semple says, “For many years my Father faithfully phoned me at 5pm on the first Saturday of every month from Germany to South Africa. This page records that tradition.”
“The old telephone motif reminds me of the land line phones we had back in the day that these phone calls were made. I used a soft light blending mode to blend a phone motif into the green background paper. The crocheted telephone and the phone motif are from Pink Reptile Designs’ Chatterbox Elements available at the Lilypad.”

Stefanie Semple says, “Here, I reflected on the ways social media and cell phones have changed how we hear the news.”
“I used the typewriter as a foundational element in my title cluster, adding deep shadowing to it for a chipboard look. It ties into my old fashioned values and the old fashioned journaling font. The type-print patterned paper represents my inability to switch off the noise that overwhelms me at times. The clusters all contain  inky brushwork or splatters, another nod to the older inky news methods.”
