The photo is of my mother (aged 5) and her best friend Barry Bennett(aged 6) dressed up for the VE Day celebrations back in 1945 (Did you notice my new desktop easel??? Wanted one of these for ages!!!)
He is carrying a pair of my mum's white ankle socks, because he didn't have any white gloves(AAAW Bless!) And my Grandad painted him a moustache with soot from the fireplace :)
I used metallic brads and stickles to add sparkle to the flowers, to match the coloured flower centres on the paper.
I just bought some black Dazzles peel offs from Hot off the Press, which I feel adds a little drama to the piece.
I am linking this piece to The Butterfly Effect....a site where we can just show off what we've been up to this week :D (now I'm off to make one of those books Amy was talking about!)
