Vintage Glam 1942

Posted by Picasa
I discovered this great photo at a antique/junk shop a couple of years ago. I purchased a box full of photos and even some negatives. I scanned the original photo, dated November 1942, and printed it on vellum to create this collage. The collage is for Mixed Media Monday's "Fashion" challenge. I also used scrapbooking paper that I tore & pasted to create a border. I rubbed the paper doily with ink to keep the piece monochromatic. The tag was inked & stamped, with the word "Glam" added. I hope you enjoy this piece....thanks for stopping by. Comments are always welcomed & loved.

I usually think doilies are a little too frou frou but what a differnce inking it made. That's my favorite detail but I adore the complete look. I love retro images. Fabulous!
