Can you see how the dress is like the art below?

This is the last 5 minutes of a movie

When I saw it, I said, "Honey, you have to see this!
I swear, I've dreamt about it."

Venice Chapel planned by Henri Matisse

Do you remember when I said, If I were an object I'd be a stained glass window, in this post?
I've now decided I want to be a stained glass window
in the 
Venice Chapel.

These works of art by Henri Matisse were what
 I referenced and used as inspiration to create
my art journal page below.

This is my version of  his art.

Little me on the left with my cousins.
My little me white romper looks inspired by Matisse too. What's up with my arm and hand?
You can see my little cousin wonders too.

    I like Matisse, but I liked the inspirations!
    The colors are amazing!
    Thanks for the messages of support, and friendship ... I really feel better after all .. =)

  14. That is so cool! I love art, as you may know by now, and this post is precious! I saw you as a little girl "worried", with your hand on your head :) I loved your art journal too, as usual! That page could be frame, it inspired me so much peace! Again, I don't know why, I could only see your post with a 2 day-delay - I don't know why, but by now we know it happens, so wait for me anyway :) because I visit you!

  15. I NEED those nude heels in the blue nude collage!

    How are you Teddi! Hope all is well and that you had a great Easter!

  16. I love stained glass windows too, I could look at them for ages love the atmosphere they create, also love your collage outfits they are so lovely and colourful :)

  17. These outfits are so amazing! They're so artsy looking and stay true to their inspiration. Those shoes in the second look need to get on my feet now.

    May the force be with you.

  18. Ooooooh, the colors in the first photograph! I love that idea for an outfit, the yellow and the blue looks so amazing together but really fun and spring time-ish. I love the artistic inspiration, you have such a good eye.

  19. love it!!!
    I'm a huge matisse fan.. so much color no?... so I definitely dig it when designers get their inspiration from art pieces.. or just making collages, pairing up different pieces channeling a certain's cool inspo no?
    cool post Teddaaay'e!

  20. Loving the art mixed with fashion. I love all of the bright colors and the top two inspirations.

  21. Ooo, this post is wonderful, Teddi. There's so much to take in. I love when an artist is inspired by another artist or a particular piece of art. That dove dress is too cool.

  22. This post is truly a feast for the senses Teddi. Matisse was a wonderful artist and I like that you paid homage to him in your art journal. I think being a stained glass in a chapel is a neat notion - you would see such a range of human emotion etched on the faces of people passing through - from utter despair to sheer bliss. A friend of my parents is a stained glass artist and for my mom's birthday one year, my dad had the glass panels on either side of their front door replaced with pieces he's commissioned from the friend - blueish-purple lilies. It's one of my favourite things in the house.
