Inspired by Frida

I recently took new self portrait photographs inspired by Frida Kahlo's look.  I made a floral headpiece especially for the photos inspired by the Frida Painting on my mousepad.  I am thinking of the amazing inspiration Frida gives all the time!

I was also inspired by Sacred Heart, Madeleine Earrings that Jen Parrish currently has in her Etsy Shop as I was lucky enough to get a pair!  They can be found here-Parrish Relics Etsy Shop.  I am wearing them with my Creatures Pendant which has a photograph of my 4 Little Black cats and a turquoise Sacred Heart Pendant.  I am wearing my turquoise "Pacem" bracelet with them that she made as well.  Love the Relics!

You can just see some of my Art dolls behind me.  Hopefully, I will be creating new ones this Spring and Summer. More photos to come from this series.  I hope all is well with all of you here in Blogland! Take care!
xoxo,
merle

Gorgeous! I love the colouring of your photos and that headdress is so beautiful.

Oh and that teal blue velvet top has me wondering why I haven't got something similar in my wardrobe. That needs to be rectified! :-)
