|"Lily", junk mail collage, photo & digital|
If you saw yesterday's blog, here,
you know I'm crazy about Aunt Vonda's school photos.
I have & treasure hundreds.
Many have a name on the back.
Today's choice was blank, so I named her Lily.
I love everything about this photo.
I started a collage using phone-book pages ...
then adding various types of newsprint.
& scraps where I had cleaned acrylics off a brush.
The scanner cut off a skice of the left side.
Lily is printed on mulberry paper ...
thus the partial transparency.
Then I played a bit with filers.
Not thrilled with my work, but I learn by experimenting.
I lost a lot of Lily's details in how I initially printed her,
(the original is so special) so will try to do better on future faces.
Would so love your feedback if you have time?
A smile for Friday ...
