Today's featured Vintage Photo Project is by Oakland artist Lynn Beldner, who made crowns with her images. We asked her a few questions:

What do you make?
I have been making art for 30 years. I work in photography, drawing, sculpture, and mixed media.

Why did you want to participate in the Vintage Photo Project?
I participated in the Vintage Photo Project because it made me curious to see what images I would receive and how I would respond to them.

How did you use your vintage photos?
I used my photos to make paper crowns.

Where do you get your inspiration?
I can be inspired by almost anything. I like simple things to inspire me the most, i.e. washing dishes, a noise, or the way a towel falls on the floor.

What is your favorite/most read art, craft or design book?
I can't really say that I have a favorite art, craft, or design book.

The Vintage Photo Project is a participatory challenge in which duplicate copies of vintage photos from the American Craft Council Library's archives have been transformed and re-imagined in myriad ways. View more Vintage Photo Projects.
