The beautiful face (slightly altered) comes from a lovely freebie at http://www.flickr.com/groups/collageimages/ submitted by Ali Mayes.
The body (greatly altered) comes from the same website and is part of an image from Suzee Que. The blue "romper suit" and legs were painted by me. The border is by Maya of SBG, the background by Lorie Davison also of SBG. Wings, hat and swirl are by Irene Alexeeva, Scraporchard. The floor is by Madame Mim at Catscrap and the stool was Googled.

I had some fun with this one. The image (outrageously altered) is from Suzee Que at Flickr free-to-use images. The butterfly was Googled.
I painted her in ArtRage using metallic paints (digital). She is wearing hot pants and striped tights. The song .... well, I kinda stole that from an oldie "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing (Doo-ah, doo-ah etc etc)". This was a song made famous by the late and very great Ella Fitzgerald.
Thanks to the ladies at Sunday Postcards for a fun challenge.

This is a true story. Well, tru-ish. Well, it could have been true IF .......
When I saw the challenge for this week I thought to myself "Wow! We are featuring my neighbour Mr Wright". I immediately called over the fence to ask if he would pose for me. This was not a difficult task for Mr Wright as "motionless" is his game, if it comes with a comfortable hammock and a few cans of ale.
I was proud of my effort UNTIL I re-read the challenge theme and saw that I should have been featuring "Mr Right"!! This is where I came unstuck. The idea of a Mr Right is quite foreign to me as the only Mister in my life has been Mr Wrong. Ah well, out came my trusty red marker and I deleted the "W" and Mr Wright became Mr Right.

Watch a fashion show and see the set, almost angry faces of the models! The face I have chosen has "the look" so it took me to the catwalk.
