2351 Vintage or Modern

I got some old art magazines for free from a breaking up of a household with interesting things to read about and many images to cut out. Always nice to cut out magazine images, right?! The portraits I used are painted by Hans Holbein the Younger.
Portrait of Henry VIII, c. 1536. Oil and tempera on oak, Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Madrid.
Portrait of Jane Seymour, c. 1537. Oil and tempera on oak, Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.

 I think the spread with these " old" images from 500 years ago and my kind of modern collage style fits  Erika's 
 At least I hope so.

  I received wonderful mail recently for my birthday from dear blogging friends. I decided to stay from now on 55 for the rest of my life and will not celebrate the date of my birth any longer since birthday celebrations are exhausting for older woman like me.
I think this is an excellent idea to no longer get older !


Thank you dear Avril, Gabi, Rosie and Wibsche! So nice of you! 
You talented and artsy girls just made me happy!

Happy weekend !
