This Thursday And Arty Girlz challenges

OK the top picture has been hanging in my kitchen for 3 years it's from a set of 2 and when I read the 2 challenges ..arty girlz Alter something and this thursday (black is back) I decided to alter the picture and frame which I had planned to do for my GD for her Birthday in November, she has been gathering Audrey Hepburn 'stuff' for a while, ready to have her bedroom decorated in A H style....
First I painted the whole thing with black acrylic after removing the original picture (will use that for something
I then added 2 x 2'' mirrors to each corner of the background, then added bling inbetween them.
I chose one of my brand new paper's from Anita's 6x6'' Classic Christmas Black Papers... never used her papers before but must say it truely is a lovely paper and the perfect colours to match Alecias silky bedding.

I then added this beautiful image from Karen at Scrapz.

The flourish is from one of Cosmo Cricket black board sets...unsure as to which one as I have a few of them but can find out if you wanted to know.
Finally I added some bling to her black German Metal crown to complete the look.

Here are a few close up pictures... in one you can see the ceiling rose photographer did well don't you think...thanks Chris. I hope Alecia likes it, I have bought silk and diamond cushions to match it along with a picture frame that is perfect to add to her room.
Thanx for looking.
