Just some innocent gawking on Pinterest lead me down the rabbit hole to click “Buy it Now”on Ebay! I purchased a cool coffee table book “The Art of Vogue Covers 1909-1940”. I had to have it! The photos are so inspiring and I got started right away on this fun beachy assemblage.
I was so happy the backside of this page wasn’t something I wanted to use and I am keeping the flag images for a patriotic idea.
I quickly painted a beach background with acrylic paint and while that was drying I cut her image (I ignored the shawl on her right arm). It was so nice that my big shell was the perfect representation of a billowy skirt. Next was to add some shadows on the sand. Last, after the shell was adhered with E6000, I added a rhinestone belt.
My gal needed feet! I clipped the feet from another page!
Wait until you see the treasure trove this book is! The pages are high quality paper and the images are bright. Here is a sample of the inspiring pages:
I can make another shell skirt assemblage with this page.
I’d like to make a greeting card with this image.
It is really nice to have fresh images for fresh inspiration, Thanks EBAY!
