One of the things I always recommend people should do when they visit Berlin is to check out the various flea markets. On a trip to Boxhagener Platz I picked up some old photos and thought they would be great for card-making.
Here are some of the old photos I bought. At first I was a bit unsure about using photos of other people that used to belong to other people and I’m sure some people might find it a bit strange but I actually really like the idea that the photos are being used and enjoyed long beyond being taken.
I haven’t got round to using them for many cards yet but here is the first one I have made for my brother. I love the cut of this photo and how the joy and conviviality is portrayed even though you can’t see the full faces of the two people in the foreground.
