Arty girlz challenge 'Inspired'

Over at the ARTYGIRLS this week our challenge is to choose a blog we like and without copying exactly deliver a piece of art we have been inspired by.
The person I have chosen to be tonight Matthew is... oops, sorry, wrong

The person I have chosen is Kris'....I first found Kris in May '08 when I was blog hopping and loved her work soooo much, how lucky was I that she was giving 3 of her painted ATC's away I asked for one of them, very soon it arrived in the post and I added it to my collection with great PRIDE.
Thank you Kris I will always treasure the above ATC. x

However for the challenge I have been inspired by another piece of her fabulous work, a very romantic pink canvas she has posted on her blog on the 23rd Oct. over HERE

I searched for a romantic flowing dress which i picked up for a song from Dolce Gabbana, and went from there and as you all know I love painted circles on some of my work so this was right up my street.

This is my version of Kris' truely creative piece... T H A N K Y O U Kris.
Sadly her head and halo are not fixed to her body as iI would like, I had them set out ok before gluing them down and would you believe on this occasion the glue stuck immediately and it was impossible to remove and reposition her.
Never mind she is still going on my wall :)) I like her.
The paper used over the canvas is from the PM 'simply elegant' pack and the really lovely gold embossing powder is one of Debbie Moore's.
The paper ribbon that sits along the lower edge of the canvas came in a RAK from Linda Vincent..thanx L.
Thanks for the challenge Girlz I really enjoyed it.
Have a lovely weekend and thanks for looking.

The art you have created here is absolutely stunning! So gorgeous and what a fabulous background! I love it. So elegant. BTW, I did not join in the cd project as both Larry and I have been ill, I am in recovery mode now tho. It has been a rough 3 weeks. I will go vote now tho, thanks for the reminder. Hugs, Gayle.
