hard times....

This is my example for the MMT comp this week. We had to use wire, hand-stitching, rust, fabric, haberdashery.... bit of a challenge for me, as I like my pages fairly minimal usually. However, I really love this one. This photo of my poor skinny man was taken underground at a mine where he says he learned a LOT about resilience! It was hard. In a way that most of us can only imagine, in an industry where normal conditions freak most people out, this job was really really tough.
But he stayed there, because there weren't that many jobs around, and a man has to do what a man has to do.

I made the gear wheel using Photoshop, Inkscape and my Cricut, and rusted it with T!ms' fab rusting technique, which I totally LOVE. Journalling is on the ticket behind the photo.


  1. I love this, and I bet your man does, too! What a great, masculine LO!

    That must have been a brutal job.

  2. This is wonderful Toni, you STILL managed to make it your 'signature' minimalist!!! FAB LO X
