GREEN PAPER CHALLENGE

Mary Green has a monthly challenge on her blog.  She provides a collage sheet and we are to use each image (entirely or in part) to make a collage.  She also has a random draw for paper ephemera for those who participate in the challenge.

This month's sheet featured Lillian Russell.  Here is my DPS done in my moleskin:



The background paper is from Mary's first class "Your Vintage Gluebook."  The theater, roses and Lillian's image were on this month's sheet.  I added the music, ticket, velvet flower and some stamped stars.  Also a bit of charcoal for shading. 

Thanks, Mary, for another fun challenge.

joy, I love the movement and feeling in your piece as well as the color in the background! The way you tilted the ballroom (?) and placed Lillian so she is looking at it is so perfect. Of course how can I resist the Magenta stamped stars you have added? You are a girl after my own heart-you know I love to do that type of thing! Lovely response to Mary's challenge.
What is DPS? I am racking my brain!

Is it Double Page Spread? Love what you've done here for the challenge - the background is great, and all the other elements work very well.x

Yes, Jo, it means double page spread. Lenna, I picked that up from one of the gals in the class; I'm really not that savvy. Thanks for your sweet comments.
