To start with, it was a difficult subject for me. I'm just not that into this type of subject. However, I gave the old college (or should I say collage) try, and I came up with this banner. Normally, I would try to do the "odd" number thing to keep it visually balanced and interesting, but it just wasn't happening... mostly because the word I chose to use was 4 lettered- VAMP. Theda earned the nickname for her femme fatale roles. She made more than 40 films between 1914 and 1926, but complete prints of only six still exist.
The parameters for this month's Design Team challenge, besides the pictures, was to use only ONE other color. I chose purple- a very regal color, don't you think? I started with two sheets of black and white patterned paper. The white pattern was a flower motif on one sheet, and butterflies on the other. I embellished it Zentangle style with a white gel pen.
Each photo was matted in purple paper, and the chipboard letters were covered in tons of glitter.
I wanted to add some further sparkle, so I added clear and purple seed beads, as well as diamond glaze.
The ribbon that I strung the banner on is vintage black rick rack. The V in it holds the pieces exactly where I want them. Plus, I thought it added some visual interest.
I have to talk to Kim, the wonderful woman who runs PDA, but I'm thinking this banner should be given away.... what do you say??
