My ARTastic entry - Together Forever

Hi there. Last night I got busy creating my layout for November's ARTastic challenge. I chose to use the photos of my wedding anniversary this year. They are quite nice posed pictures my husband and I took of each other. I love the dress I wore. It's very pretty and floral so I wanted to complement the colours in the dress when I made the layout.

Here's my layout and a couple of close ups.

The painting inspiration is Bacchus by Caravaggio. (see here to view the picture on the blog)
The extra criteria is to add:
1. fruit or graphs
2. wine glass or bottle
3. a bow

I've got all of them. I have a wine bottle which is full of grapes. It is a sticker journal box by Creative Imaginations. Neat huh? I have a little red rose with a green ribbon bow in the top journal box.

I have a created a cluster or BG stickers and Cosmo Cricket doilies in the centre at the bottom to replicate the fruit bowl in the painting.

Thanks for looking.

Incredible news. This layout won first prize. Hooray. I'm so happy.
