Summer of Colour ~ Red ~

Loving this summer of so many colours...what lovely people I've met with so many diverse talents...thank you so much for visiting & your comments have been making my heart smile!

OoOoo red...so many options...but yet again, I opted to go with the obvious. I really need to get my creative juices flowing & start thinking outside of the box. lol.  Here is my  "Lady in Red"


175

I really enjoyed creating her. I knew I wanted to keep her dress simple yet sleek, & was happy with the embellishment starting in her hair then continuing onto the train of her dress. The butterflies, well, they just appeared after realizing that she's looking up at the sky.

Can't wait to be inspired by every one's works of red!
