Scrap Africa Sketch No30 - 13 arts Let's splash ! Challenge No 19

   Good morning everyone! With this layout I will play at  two different challenges.

From the time I saw the challenge at Scrap Africa I new I had to make a vintage project and I have to admit that I loved this sketch very- very-very much !! It is for sure one of my favorite ever !!!
I also gave it a try to make some splashes on this layout because I wanted to play with 13arts this month !

  These two women are my grandmother Eleni and her sister Maria at a photograph from 1937 just before the World War 2. These young girls at their 20s were just starting to learn their future professions while they lived in Athens at the time. My grandmother later on at about 1948 opened a Hair Salon at Chalkis while her sister became a dressmaker. They were both women of the fashion and everyone can tell just by looking at their photos!

I used a lot of mediums and made some crazy stamping  and splashes










This is the original photograph. I made a copy for my layout because I didn't want to "destroy" it ...



  And this is the amazing sketch No30 from Scrap Africa



Thank you all for being here, have a great day !!!
