Between School and Marriage


A double page spread for my Collage Coterie Moleskine book.  I wanted to have a more colourful spread than previous pages, without being over the top.  The image of the girl on the left was black and white so I chalked in a little colour.  In the photo her face looks a bit jowly, but it doesn't look like that in reality. The title came from an old book.

I love this JO!! I especially like the couple on the right. They pull at my heartstrings. You did a wonderful job chalking a bit of colour to the girl on the left. The backround behind both images really pulls it together! : ^ ) lenna

You have given the girl some colour - she looks sad.The couple look very established.
