Hi everyone, just a quick post for now!
We got a bit behind with our Wanderlust classes but we are now back on track!
This page is for Week 21, a class by Shawn Petite.I chose this image that was cut from a paper carrier bag that we got when we visited the Hofburg in Vienna a few years ago.
It is Empress Elisabeth of Austria and Hungary - her nickname was Sissi and there is a Sissi Museum in the Hofburg in Vienna.
Here is a link to a Wikipedia page
If you remember (as I do) a film called 'Mayerling' starring Omar Sharif you may know that her son died with his mistress in a Hunting Lodge.
She had a sad life although she was Empress, and travelled extensively and alone.
I am entering this spread at Art Journal Journey - Mia's theme is 'Butterflies' I added the black and white butterfly to balance Sisssi's dark hair decorated with ornaments.
I am also entering at the Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge - 'I'm Feeling Like Royalty'
Hubby took different path to mine, once again adding some wildlife - his main image came from a brochure for an outdoor art exhibition at Tatton park.
Although we were behind and we had to fit our art sessions in between some outings we really enjoyed this class and the results.
Thanks for looking, Chris
