A little bit vintage

I don't really scrap much in the vintage style, but I came across a photograph that I really wanted to try scrapping.  It's a photograph of my husband's dad as a young boy, with his older sister, Janet. We were in Sydney to celebrate Janet's 90th birthday in August.

(This is actually a photograph of a photograph - one day we hope to get her old photographs scanned so all of the family can have digital copies.)

I played with some wonderful Flourish with a Bling goodies which arrived in the mail this week :)

Here's little detail of the FWAB flowers, and I tried to capture the shimmer on the fence too.  You can also see that I gesso'd the grass to tone down the intense emerald colour:

I'm submitting this layout at Feeling Sketchy for their December "free scrap" layout challenge.
