When I read this week's theme for Collage Obsession was Portrait I knew right away I wanted to use a vintage postcard of one of my ancestors. My Grandma had a few postcards of family members, but everyone had pretty much lost track of who they were. But here is one from either the Zupsic or Birsic side of the family who came from Croatia to America in the late 1800s or early 1900s. I used some of the stamps from the former Yugoslavia, postmarked from Severin Na Kubi, where my maternal Grandmother's family hailed from. I quilted the piece and embellished with vintage lace, a religious charm, hair pin, and velvet.
