The Scarf Clan

 On our trip to Europe with my school we went shopping in Florence, and stopped off at the boar market. Its named after the brass/bronze statue of a boar at the front that is said if you rub its nose, you will return to Florence someday. The market is in this huge pavilion behind the boar statue and is completely crammed with all these booths and stalls. Most of them sell stuff like scarves and purses and belts, plus leather goods because Italy is renowned for its leather. Well us four decided that we would all spend a ton on scarves, and each of us bought at least 3 or 4 that day. So we nicknamed ourselves the scarf clan, because from every day afterwards, we wore our scarves.
 A close up of the texturing on the backround paper. It's the type of paper with a white core, so all around the focal points i sanded it down so it appears lighter. The white flower i actually found lying on the ground in Florence :) so I brought it home.
