CDV Altered ancestor swap

Here are my 5 altered ancestor CDVs for the swap that JoAnne at Vintage Dragonfly 
is hosting.  It was a challenge for me, as I had never seen these done up before.  
I hope I did mine up okay!
 I thought he looked like he should be a young king, so I call him George, and when I looked on the back of this one,  It reminded me of royalty in an Eastern Europe country.  (below is the back)

I wanted this one to be more three dimensional. and then on the back it says why 
she looks so sad. . . . 

Her anchor brooch led me to believe that she loved to sail, so I gave her
"Anchors Away"


I kept her what she did best evidently and that was being a photographer.  
Added some texture to this one and a little feather to her cap.

Nursemaid Jane
On the back it says. . . .(above)
She was 'Full of Charity' and I hope you have enjoyed seeing my mixed media altered art!  I really had never done any of these before, so didn't really know much about altering them.
