Gothic Arches - Haute Couture


This sort of brought out all the things about high fashion I don't like, the money, the often ridiculous clothes and the super skinny models ad this little poppet just sort of sums it all up I think! I wanted a background that was rich and textured and had sheen so I went for Stewart Gill paints (colourise and Alchemy)with a couple of selections of glitter strewn over. No pretty girls this week!
