The two Sisters are in full effect. Where it’s sinning be weary because they always find it and will lay down the verses of the Bible and ease the pain.
I tell you I had really fun doing this photo with my bestie, Sugah. We can come up with some crazy scenes at times, but this time she did the magic herself and I just did my own make-up so to say.
I am extremely happy that I’m doing more collaborations this year around than last year, it makes it more fun for me to experiment with different looks and items. So be sure to look for more collaborations in store! For more information and looks please visit Sugah’s blog.
This was just a simple profile close up. No new style, just trying to prefect my close up shots. I thought I did a very good style on it. I am showcasing some items from Applique that is going on from this current round. You’ll be able to get these new releases here Applique . Make sure you visit before it’s over!
I thought I would talk a bit about my process on where my brain was going in this photo. I wanted the Red Queen to be sort of welcoming Alice into her forest area where the rocking horse flies were coming out around here, over grown mushrooms and this way or that way trees in the back. Instead of actual playing card guards it’s more of a book cut out morbid type of thing.
I wanted it to be ‘dark’, but not so dark to where it’s like twisted Alice type deal here. Like some sort of soft line of Dark and Light. So this is what I came up with. I’m pretty proud of the photo after my first attempt which was horrible! My friends were like Eww when I showed them the photo, so this was a better attempt and I must say that I love this one over the first one.
Enchantment starts a new theme this month and it’s no other than Alice in Wonderland.
`Would you tell me,’ said Alice, a little timidly, `why you are painting those roses?’
Five and Seven said nothing, but looked at Two. Two began in a low voice, `Why the fact is, you see, Miss, this here ought to have been a red rose-tree, and we put a white one in by mistake; and if the Queen was to find it out, we should all have our heads cut off, you know. So you see, Miss, we’re doing our best, afore she comes, to–‘ At this moment Five, who had been anxiously looking across the garden, called out `The Queen! The Queen!’ and the three gardeners instantly threw themselves flat upon their faces. There was a sound of many footsteps, and Alice looked round, eager to see the Queen.
[Personally, if I was Alice I would’ve told the three playing cards to tell her to paint her own damn flowers.]
