‘The Adventure Begins’ Layout by Collette Mitrega

A good friend of mine Sandra Boles took this amazing award winning photo and she kindly let me use it. It goes perfectly with the colours in the ‘Bombay Sunset’ collection with its bold striking colours, clashing patterns and detailed floral designs! I love this photo and simple layout; I have looked at it so many times and can see a life of hardship and so much more. It was taken in Rajasthan.
