Art Creations Friday - Marilyn



This week's image was of Marilyn Monroe for Art Creations Friday. Wow. How hard is that. A face that has been named this century's six most recognized and sexy face. As Elton John so astutely sang she died way to young. Of all the "sex symbols" of this era I always liked her the best. She had that dumb girl yet know it all attitude. The thing I really liked the best was her sense of humor. I think she was very funny.

So, this is my entry to the challenge. I used a diamond for the background. A few extra images of Marilyn Monroe in her diamonds. One is from the movie "Diamonds are a Girl's best friend." Then a quote of hers. I really hope I did her justice...

I love the addition of the other Marilyns, and the quote, of course, is perfect. Good work!

I love this page - I have several Marilyn photos throughout my house. I wasn't a huge fan of hers however, she was so beautiful and photogenic that it's hard not to admire her.
