IMT Challenge~ Black and White

Finally got the IMT B&W challenge done! It took me awhile to come up with an idea and this is what I did...I have created a black and white collage on 8x10 wrapped canvas....I gesso'd the canvas and let it dry...I then scanned into my computer a vintage dictionary page and then printed it out 3 times on my black laser printer...then tore the 3 copies up and adhered them to the canvas....then I painted around them with black acrylic paint...I then found the image of these ladies at Flickr Collage Images....and adhered them to the piece....I went into the microsoft paint program and did the lettering w/black background. It reads, "It's not trash, it's ephemera!" hehe....I kinda like it. I then added a black and white checker'd bow to the top left corner.....Hmmmm I wonder if someone I know will recognize where that pretty little ribbon came from hehehehe.

Happy Creating!

Brilliant, Nancy! 'It's not trash, it's ephemera' ~ I love it! That has to go up on the wall in my 'ephemeral' workroom! ;) LoL!

I love the description of how you made it - makes me want to have a go myself! Excellent results!

Much Love & Big Hugs, Q xXx
