Reluctant bridesmaid

My mother and my grandparents at my Aunt's wedding; my Mum tells me she hated the whole experience of being a bridesmaid, I'm going to get her exact take on the whole thing and journal later - do a double page spread with the bride and groom on the other side. All I know for sure is that the dress was pale blue and the gloves and hat a pale pink...isn't it funny that no one seemed to smile in wedding photographs!

I extracted the figures, duplicated a couple of times and set the mode hard light, layered these on a selection of transfers with the frame in the background also on hard light. In between the duplicated figures I used one of the brushes to introduce a hint of blue and pink. I duplicated and enlarged my Mum, still on hard light mode and behind used an overlay from AP Viaggio to introduce a bit more texture.

You did a wonderful job on this priceless photo. Looks like Grandma was sort of happy.
 
Wonderful story and title! Love the blended photo of your mother! Beautiful heritage page!
 
Beautiful page and just the right touches of color. Love the old photo.
 
No, they didn't smile did they! It's wonderful that you can ask your mom for details about this photo and then add the journaling to your page! Love your page!
 
You've left me wondering! I need to know why she was so obviously unhappy. I guess marriage was a serious business in those days. She made a beautiful bridesmaid in any case. I love how you blended in the bigger photo of her.
 
adore how you've colored the photos. fabulous design for an unhappy event though!
