Octoroon Girl (s)

the challenge at Artastic this month is a painting I've never heard of called Octoroon Girl- Shazza has specified the following things on the LO
1. A picture of yourself ( I hope I'm allowed to have a photo of me and someone)
2. colours of red and maroon
3. a hat or gloves- I added the piece of Cosmo cricket specially as she has a hat on in the picture and it was the only thing I could find

The photo is me and Nancy dressed up in our bridesmaids dresses for my sister's wedding last month
the random looking 11 on there was because the wedding was on the 11th of June
This was the inspiration


  1. Love this Karen and love the background so effective

  2. Lovely page Karen, really like how you have designed your page. The title you have created is also very creative and effective.

  3. Hello Karen;0) Great LO! Love the pic of you and your little girl, very cute. And I absolutely love how you sprayed the "together" on your Lo. Great idea! Thank you for joining us over at ARTastic;0)

    Hugs xx
