The Fier Siblings

Henry Fier, Grandma Marie's Dad, had two sisters.  One was named Carrie.  One sister never married.  The other sister had a son that worked for a perfume company and would bring Grandma perfume.  Adult photo c 1890.

After adhering the vintage buttons to the side of the layout, I wrapped hemp fiber around them.


I added some dimension spreading colored texture paste over a stencil.



A quick and effective way to combine large sheets of paper together is to staple them, hiding the staples under the photos or other elements..

My Mom doesn't know which sister is Carrie, and who's who in the child photos, but it's unmistakable they are the same family!
