Sister's Love layout - Meg's Garden

Hi everyone,
I have a special layout that I have created for
my DT work for Meg's Garden
Using the latest release papers
Dreaming in Lavenders paper collection

Sister's LOVE- layout by Adriana Bolzon
The story behind the photo.
This photo is of my Great Aunties on my 
mother's side of the the family. 
Taken around 1937.
The one on the far left in the photo, is Iseta, 
she was getting married and was leaving the family 
to live in Roussillon in France with her new husband. 
So this was the last photo of them together, 
she is the only one still living, 
but she now lives in Italy, 
she is now in her 95th year. 
The other two sisters, are married as well 
and migrated to Canada with their husbands.

The paper I have used for the background 
is the Dreaming in Willows paper 
from the new paper collection.
 I just love the soft greys and with 
touches of lavendar and white.
I used a leaf Stencil and soft ink on the background

In the bottom right hand corner is a small collage tag the
Paris Effiel tower placed on a
Vintage tags and elements sheets tag, 
Elements paper and an old airmail envelope 
are tuck underneath the layout, 
depicting the many letters that were written to 
each other back in olden days.

Clusters of paper and velvet flowers and leaves.

German Scrap border
Transparencies Collage sheet in the
top right hand corner, creating a flourish around 
the photo and some Lace on the bottom of page.

Thanks for looking, Cheers Adriana XX :)
