Orange Paperie September challenge.

This month's challenge was to use a black and white photo,ribbon,inking,chippy,distressing and a 2 word title.
My layout is named "City bound" and features Mum dressed up for a big day in town, meeting up with friends probably.She carries gloves and her fur stole as well as a patent leather handbag and wearing a hat.This photo was taken from one of Dad's old slides and has faded from colour to sepia(hope this is permissable).For this reason,I chose browns and blues for my layout.I've misted through the city chipboard before painting it & placing across the lower section of the layout.There is a section of lace from one of Mum's old hankys plus a tiny blue ribbon bow.
