The Three Muses Challenge - Relationships


I created two versions for this theme and couldn't decide which one to choose so include both here on my blog. In the top picture, the background paper, stairs and overlays are by Lauren Bavin of Digital Scrapbook Place. The stitched circle is by Berna Datema, SBG. The main photo in both versions is one of my mother (on the left and her sister).
In the second picture, I used background and some elements by Dawn van der Stoep (Createwings Designs). The photos are from my own family albums.

  12. Your relatives are very handsome as they used to say...in otherwords beautiful. Such elegant attire...beautifully created they are, all ready for Spring and Fall! Would be interesting to know what colors they originally were. Hugs, Gayle.

  13. Both pieces are so lovely Marie, there's no wonder that you couldn't choose. If I had to, it would be the second one, but just for the superb quote you've included. How lucky you are to own this little piece of history. Standing ovation Marie.

  20. Marie, what beautiful women you have in your family! Your art work with your personal photos is stunning. I loved the one you colored. It looks so natural to see the two in lilac. Then when I saw the vintage piece I just fell in love with it. Great job on both.

  22. Bonsoir Marie !
    En effet je comprends que le choix soit difficile !
    Bonne idée d'avoir posté les deux versions ! je crois que je préfère la seconde image : celle en tons sépia ! mais les deux sont très belles !
    j'ai fait comme vous , j'ai utilisé également une photo de famille pour ce challenge !
    Bonne journée ! Amitiés Mary.KG

  24. They are both so lovely, Marie. I can see why you found it hard to choose - I think, for me, the lower one has the edge but....

  25. Marie, This is a real gift, to show both, since it is a reminder of the infinite possibilities that exist for any given piece. They are both really gorgeous, and your mother and aunt, how beautiful! Love the hats... ~Sharon

  27. I really like your both creations, Marie. I have a sister and she is very important to me. And the quote in your card (A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost) is so true! We understand each other so well without words too, because we share the same childhood.

    I'm clad you post these both creations - they are so touching!
