Self Portrait Challenge - Pop Art #1



Pop Art Julie Mona Lisa
For the Self Portrait Challenge this month we're doing PopArt. I combined the two images below and scanned and fooled with a filter to make the "popped" version.
Pop art to me has always meant oversatured colors, an image that is instantly recognizable, and something that you are used to seeing around all the time.

Julie trying a Mona Lisa smile. Not my usual smile, I'm usually a toothsome smiler! Plus Mona Lisa does not have a dimple. Or an extra chin for that matter, oh well.

The original Mona Lisa by DaVinci, this is from Dover ClipArt, check out their freebies of clip art.
