Girl guides 1930s style

This One is for the latest sketch at Pencil LInes

I used an old photo of my Nan in the girl guides in the 1930s- she's the one top left- but she looks a little too old to be in the guides! I love the hat she's wearing and her uniform is pretty amazing as well. I used a piece of old pattern paper as the background that I bought in a charity shop.

Sorry about the glare on the photo and sorry for the lack of sketch at the bottom but blogger won't let me put anything under the picture at the moment- why not go and look for it here
