Film Noir

June’s theme of the week at Dezinaworld Spotlight Challenge is “lavender and any other colour”. I had just the perfect image from June’s “Painted Ladies” collage sheet.The actual image led me to select black as the other colour. My imagination might be in overdrive, again, but she looks like a leading lady in a Film Noir. I turned down one corner of the main “Paris Nights” paper (which is flocked) and slipped a piece of co-ordinating paper behind it then added some bits and pieces.

    The more I look at this Lynne, the more I love it. Turning down the corner is a very useful design idea. Very imaginative!
    She is so sophisticated and she has a look of Sandie Shaw about her.

    Have a wonderfully creative day, Sue xxxx

    I love this image and what you have done with it. The dress almost looks as though fashions have come full circle; she looks very red carpet!
