Paint Party Friday.....a nod to Retro fashion



Hi Everyone....I am in shock that it is Friday already....the week sure flew by....but I guess I say that every week...I have been working on a few fashion watercolours that I have used in some of my jewelry photo shoots....I will be working on a whole new series of these pretties and will showcase them here....

I also thought I would show you how I used these paintings in my earring line photos...








I am having way too much fun creating and love being super busy with projects and always take some time late in the evening to work on some stuff without a deadline....keeps the creative juices flowing....

I am sharing my new ladies with all of my super talented friends over at Paint Party Friday....hope to see you there too....

Happy Friday and Happy Creating....

I am so loving your watercolors especially the details you added like the rose in the hair and the bracelets....and how you've captured a vintage feel! And then you add your earrings to them - what a wonderful combination!!!!

Love the fashion. I made most of those clothes in high school. . . . then we put on a fashion show for the whole school. That was a fun time. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, Janet, PPF
