Family.......

......is the theme for the Gothic Arch challenge this week. The background is made up of lovely vintage wallpaper that Keron very kindly sent me all the way from Australia! This is edged with torn text sponged with moonshadow ink. The image was first transfered onto a book page then cut out & the edges smudged with charcoal pencil.
