Here's what I made for today. I used Movie Gala Betty and the Red Carpet Background.

As you can see, I made an art journal page. When I first saw Movie Gala Betty, she reminded me of Angelina Jolie, that one year for (I think it was) the Oscars, when she had on those beautiful Emerald earrings? Those earrings were stunning and Angelina looked amazing. 

So that's why I chose that color for the earrings. And she just seemed like she needed to be in red. But I didn't want her to clash with the carpet (I only have a few reds), so I decided to keep the rest of the background in gray scale, for the most part. I used my watercolor markers and my Copics for this art journal page.

Around the edge of the page I wrote, "Wouldn't it be fun to be a Hollywood starlet? Even if it were just for one night? To be dolled up and beautiful? For everyone to wish they were you? To be pampered and photographed? Just for one night?" I don't know about you, but I have certainly daydreamed about this! 

So? Are you excited about this collaboration? I know I am!!! And there's a ton more to see! Today's full hop list is below. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Absolutely brilliant art journal page, Alison. I loved how you gave Movie Gala Betty the emerald earrings, with that gorgeously colored dress, and kept the background image grey.
