This is a photograph of my paternal Grandmother Parmelia Gagnon (nee Gagne) taken in 1891. My Grandmother is the seated young lady on the left, in the very front of the group. Two of the girls are unknown, but the girl standing on the far right is my Grandmother's sister, my grand aunt, Corine Gagne. The photo is rather intriguing to me, as both my Grandmother and her sister have their hair down and flowing, and the other girls do not! I wonder what that means??!! Anyway I think it is a wonderful photograph, I just love it! The title is The Rose and the Flowers, only in French, as that is the ancestry of my Grandmother, and her middle name was Rose.
Again in this layout I used antique pieces, old bits of trim from antique dresses, antique silk velvets, antique flower trims, antique laces and beads and netting. Also inks and sprays were used.
