Her Majesty Marie Antoinette
When I first heard about the latest opulent issue of Somerset's publication called "Marie," I couldn't wait to experience a taste of it. There is quite a rage stirring on so many blogs, and I too have become attracted to her flourishing dresses, diamond-encrusted crowns, her frivolous lifestyle, and her story of broken love.
Once I decided to make this digital collage of her, my mind started moving into motion. In fact, you can get even more inspiration by visiting Itkupilli and checking out her wonderful digital collage sheets. She is amazing!
I keep thinking of what else can I make? Should I alter a pair of satin shoes fit for a queen, a doll, a journal, or maybe some tags? Her Majesty is definitely inspiring me to begin a Marie art journey, starting by searching my room for items that speak of her femininity, grace, and memories of her past life.
Thank you, Dede Warren, who put out a call on her blog six months ago, looking for artists interested in participating in an art journal, round-robin style, with a theme of Marie Antoinette and the style of her day. That is where it all began. What a heavenly issue from Somerset publications to treasure.
