An Evening In Paris

Greetings - thank you for visiting. 
I was recently asked to be a guest designer for 


I was given this image of Lady Katherine by Sandi Hugget to use.  I took a couple of days mulling over how I would present her, and I decided that a Parisian theme would 'fit' her.


The background image is one I found on my computer under the category Dana's Inspiration (which I have linked for your convenience).  The edges were distressed, and faux stitching was added. I painted Lady Kathleen's gown in Twinkling H2O's, and chalked her skin and hat, and popped her up on foam dots.


Needless to say an evening in Paris would not be complete without feathers and bling.

I am linking this to:


Thank you for visiting, and any comments left are always greatly appreciated
May your day be blessed.
