Round Robin Journal: My Page for Astrid

Astrid has arranged a round robin journal, full details of which can be found here.
This is my page for Astrid on the theme "Children of a Bygone Age". The background is gessoed, inked with Distress Inks and stamped and I've layered the music and the children image over the top. The children are an image transfer done using Mod Podge. I've added a piece of vintage lace at the bottom which I've also coloured using Distress Inks, a Grungeboard flourish and some layered Prima Flowers. The butterflies are stamped, cut out and stuck on, and the song words are handwritten.

This is really stunning, Sian! I love your use of shades of the same colour and the transparency of the image of the children gives a dreamlike quality to the piece.

ooooh this is quite spooky! it actually made me shiver.

beautifully done, but it clearly reminds me of something scary I saw on TV when I was little, or something :)
