The King's Beloved Sister

I've been scanning some of my Dad's wonderful art prints. This one is Holbein the Younger's portrait of Anne of Cleves which was commissioned when Anne was Henry VIII prospective 4th bride. The marriage wasn't a success and it was annulled. Henry was grateful that Anne didn't contest the annulment and she become known as The King's Beloved Sister.

This is lovely Eden. I think I read that, before he met her, Henry VIII had been tricked into thinking that Anne was beautiful, possibly by this painting?! The reality was apparently quite the opposite. I suppose Holbein's creation was a 16th century version of a "Photoshopped" picture! Great LO. Love the blending with the bg paper.

Beautiful, Eden! What a work of art, indeed - such a gorgeous creation. Your blending is lovely and I love the mystical quality to your page. I like how you show photo pieces in the smaller pics - like the marriage broken apart and the way you placed the rosary woven around them. Really a lovely layout. I so enjoyed looking through it. :)

Beautifully done! I especially love the richness of the patterns and the way you excerpted parts of the print. The elaborate jeweled rosary makes a great embellishment. Gorgeous page!

This is stunning! I love the overlay of the lace/fabric. And the close-up shots are wonderful. Thanks for the background info on the painting. It would be great to include that info with the LO (even on the back or on a separate piece of paper hidden if you don't want it to show) for others in years to come to know about. Great job.

Absolutely stunning. I love what you have done with the photos and the addition of the Rosary is beautiful. The large background photo is just awesome.

What a creative page! I like the way you used the print blended in the background as well as little section lined up on the side. I like the jewelry and lacy piece, too.
