Scrap Around the World September Challenge

This is the September challenge at Scrap around the world.
I loved the drama and flair of the mood board and decided to scrap an older photo.
I was inspired by the lacy look of the face paininting on the model.
 The sketch I used by rotating once to the right
There were a lot of stylized flowers around in the 70's as well as  rich magentas and apricot colours, so I played with stamps and gelatos to try and achieve the look of the time.
