Playing Ladies

Wow I've got a bit more catch up to do, so this is hopefully the first of my weekends efforts. I had fun using this awesome photos of my sisters and I all dolled up for a race meeting in Forbes, NSW last year.

Here is the Dusty Attic monthly layout sketch I have followed:
I started with Kaisercraft paper from the Needles and Thread collection, then layered on a bit of Martha Stewart paper.  Lots of ink & gesso grunged up the page, then I softened the look with some muslim, doily, and random flowers.  Dusty Attic chippies DA0579 scroll #6 small, and DA0370 mini vines were gesso'd, glimmer misted, then stamped to give that tortoiseshell look - I love it.
I'm please with how this has turned out considering my senses and creativity are very dulled at the moment with a terrible head cold.  Thank you for looking, please leave a comment.
