Mixed Media Monday: Fashion

Fashion is this week's MM challenge, a theme I'm not altogether comfortable throwing together. Fashion in Southeast Alaska generally equates to a good rain jacket and rubber boots (aka Sitka Slippers). I built the background using Distress Crackle Paints in Fired Brick and Mustard Yellow. Added sequin scrap and topped off the piece with the Diva word stamp by Inkastamps. I pulled the Divas from a magazine, added a light layer of Gesso, and outlined in pen and Caran d'Ache crayons.

Well when it comes to fashion, I always think of these gals, just wish I someplace to wear them too!

Love the happy background you did too, very creative!

It's a wonderful piece -- perfect for the theme. Your use of the Sex in the City characters is quite appropriate, and your treatment of the magazine photo is terrific.
