Follow In My Footsteps - Wishful

Using the last of the backgrounds for this mini series 1, this panel came about really quite simply. By choosing the small ephemera card of the Boston store to work with I just searched my left overs, kept in small boxes, to fit a green theme and this is what I came up with.

I wonder what the story is of this young woman? Does she work in the store and restock the shelves or is it one of her favourite stores to visit? Perhaps she went in recently and bought something for 23 shillings.

If you haven't seen the previous three in the series they are SoulfulThoughtful and Determined.

The steps to follow for creating the background can be found by visiting a Vintage Collage Tag, created in July 2017.

Supplies I used -
DecoArt Chalky Finish paints in relic, lace, rustic, revive, raw umber, burnt umber and quinacridone gold.
Tinting Base
Text stamp
Collage ephemera

Delightful ephemera collaging - the grungy distressed look is so cool, and I love the rosette photo frame.
