The Roaring Twenties

This week I really struggled, and then I realised it's still only Wednesday! So stress over, haha - *phew*
My lady is modelling the latest fashions on the catwalk. She was a B&W image, courtesy of Google, that I coloured with promarkers and used white watercolour for her gloves & necklace.
I coloured my tag with broken china DI & speckled it with water then decorated it with some sequins. I stuck on a lovely piece of burgundy paper that I thought looked a bit like carpet and stuck my model on with pads to give her dimension. I added some gorgeous threads in the guise of a tassel and took the photo against a picture of an art deco doorway & staircase that I thought fit my modelling theme.
I've visited all the amazing tags that are here already this week (you are all so on the ball!) & think they are all incredible! Thank you for your generous comments on my Italy tag last week. Next week's Fish theme is going to be a little tricksy for me I think. But I look forward to the challenge and to seeing what you all create. Until then, stay well and be happy *hugs* :0) Mo xx
