I Heart Faces "Paper" Challenge

The Letter
"The Letter"
My sister loves to sew; this photo is of her dressed up in an 1840's gown she made based on a dress in the movie "Cranford." If you have seen the movie, the character Sophie Hutton wears a gown similar to this dress. This was a fun photo shoot with her dressed up reading a letter. This theme interested me because there are so many ways you could use paper in a photo! It was fun to set up this shot; she had to get all dressed up, we curled and pinned up her hair, I wrote her a two page letter with my quill pen and sealed it with red wax.
11-27 ~ I just found out I made the top 10 with this photo! 9th place - yippeee!

  18. What a beautiful model T makes! I loved how you made the picture look so "old fashioned" it looks like something out of a 1800's movie.
