WOW! Another fantastic layout to share, this time from another newbie :)

Christina Aiton - eternal

Here's my take on that great Alma-Tadema painting. Love your challenges and so glad I found your site.

This is what Christina said on her blog........This layout I did for Artastic - just found this challenge blog through Julie. The inspiration this month is an Alma-Tadema fin de siecle painting of a Grecian woman in a long flowing gown - there is a frieze of drawings across the wall behind her and some plants in the lower right corner. I took the inspiration of eternal (the frescoes on the wall in the painting) and found this photo I took when we were in San Francisco one time - this is a beach north of the Bridge, probably off of Muir woods. The card is a wallpaper sample from Anthropologie, the other ephemera was from an old Somerset magazine, and the leaves were cut from a piece of old Making memories paper - the background paper is old Basic Grey.

Hey Christina, this is a lovely serene layout, and a great interpretation of the art work. Love the old Basic Grey pp and your handcut leaves. Perfect title for this piece... Loven it! - Shazza
