"Let Them Eat Cake!"
There comes a time in every collage artist's life when they find they have the desire to do a Marie Antoinette piece. This happened to me recently after picking up a copy of the Somerset Studio special publication "Marie". This awesome issue was filled with nothing but pieces dedicated to the art and opulence of everything Marie Antoinette. It featured Marie paper dolls, paper shoes, attire, collages and even collaborative book pieces. It was a truly beautiful and well put together magazine and If you can get your hands on a copy I highly recommend that you do. You will no doubt be inspired to put your own creative spin on creating fabulous art pieces featuring this most interesting of historical figures. In the meantime it is my hope that you enjoy my take on this wonderful bit of history and art.
