J'adore Haute Couture...........


but can't afford it!!!!

This weeks challenge over on Gothic Arches was 'Haute Couture'.

I really struggled with this theme for some unknown reason...considering I LOVE clothes, especially handbags and shoes as everyone who knows me will testify!

I eventually sponged a background then used black indian ink before adding the image, lace, sequins, feathers and words to make a mixed media collage.

Jan's right, this is very sexy!! Haute couture is dear to my heart (like you I love shoes and handbags!!) -- and like you I can't afford it but being able to create it with art -- it's the next best thing!
