Art Creations Friday - Springtime in Paris

Springtime in Paris

This week the theme for the Art Creations Friday Challenge was this beautiful freebie I gave out some time ago. I was so honored they used one of my freebies. Of course, this is one of my favorite images and I had to meet the challenge.

I decided to do a springtime digital. Some of my best Spring's were spent with my first husband in Paris. There is just something about that city that makes my heart skip a beat. Everyone should put on their bucket list a trip to Paris in the Spring!


The original image.

She certainly is a beauty and I Love what you've done with her Elizabeth!
I remember sitting at a cafe with fresh peonies on the table within view of Sacre-Coeur ... that memory is fresh in my mind all these years later ... I would Love to return one day with my sweetheart.
Thanks as always for sharing so freely, my Last Door Down the Hall file keeps growing thanks to your generosity :)

That is absolutely gorgeous, now I have GOT to make a "veiled woman" project ;)

Jennifer said...

Lovely! Such a haunting image and combining it with Paris!

Jann said...

Your artwork is always so striking--and this one, especially, is just gorgeous--what you did with the image is just stunning! I wish I knew how to do the digital type of creating; I have Photoshop Elements and can never figure out those layers and how I can get them to work with all of the backgrounds and pictures I have. So I just keep doing things with paper . . .
