Rajasthan, India

Post by Guest on Wed 8 Jul 2009 - 15:22

Here's a layout I have been working on today in odd moments. The gold (very typical India!) is bright holographic card, but it doesn't show up all that well on the layout. The lace at the bottom is glittery gold too.

Thanks Kim! I think she might need glasses now she's a year older, don't you? Widows always threw themselves on the funeral pyre, thinking life wouldn't be worth living.

The girl was a dung gatherer, collecting cow dung from the streets and making it into pancake shapes to be used as fuel for the fires.
Cannot help you on who the bloke was!

Loving the chat as much as the LO on this one, I bet it looks even better IRL with that gold on it. Have to agree Maria, looks like a visit to spec savers for you next time you're over here LOL
