"I'm Ready For My Close-Up, Mr. DeMille"

The famous line from "Sunset Boulevard," delivered by Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond, is the basis for our theme this month at The East Wind Facebook page. Take your favorite TEW image and crop so only the head remains, for a close up that would rival Norma Desmond's.

I used Lucy Loo 'Arabian Nights' for my DT inspiration.

I coloured her with Copics:
Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E13, E04
Hair - E49, E47, E44, E41
Eyes - YG17, YG13, YG00 & Prismacolor Pencils Black and Dark Green, plus a white gel pen for highlights (If you like how my eyes turned out, check out Unky's Colouring Therapy on YouTube for a great tutorial!)
The paper is from a DCWV All Dressed Up mat stack; the embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Bo Bunny

While we're having lots of fun over on the Facebook page, don't forget there are TWO challenges every month on the blog also. So THREE chances to show us your talent and win some free images from TEW! Make sure you check it out!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my project for this challenge with you!
