I started out with this rather compelling, although pretty beat up print of a painting. I got it from the thrift store for $3 .  I used colored pencil, pastels,(my printer), water color, tea, ribbon, glitter, and some elmers glue!

I have an idea of what the new image is about...but I wonder what you think it is...I only wish I would have discovered this challenge in time to do what I really wanted to! (I guess that's what everyone says) I think it shall be a work in progress...Anyway, here you have it! thanks for looking

Before.

After.
*I used colored pencil to clean up the scratches (they are really almost invisible from straight on).
*I added color to her lips, nails and cheeks and then colored the apple.
*Her halo is colored pencil/ pastel.( I wish I had some gold foil)
*The frame has a new ribbon edge and I started to glitter it, but stopped half way up. It looks a little firey. I dunno, I like it alright.
*The woman is partially cut out for depth
*The adams are print outs which I attempted to give a more sepia tone, but I didn't quite get them the shade I had hoped!

Greenified Apple, and "painted" nails

And her ..."entranced" Adams (all taken from famous paintings)

Great of you to see woman with apple and think 'Eve'.  Maybe that was what the origional was supposed to be but it took me a few to figure it out (Adams?)  Great job!

Alternatively, how about Snow White and the seven dwarves (though a few dwarves short, hahaha)? I don't mean any offense - this is just the way my brain works XD.

It reminds me of the "portraits" in the haunted mansion at Disney World!

Ahh!  I completely adore how you took who is meant to be the bad character and made her somewhat of a saint.  Beautiful idea, nicely done.

I think it's beautiful.  It does remind me of snow white a little too now that someone said it Smiley
