1st Works in Roma's Book

Mixed media piece for Moleskine Exchange

I wasted no time starting in Roma's book. Acrylic, collage & white gel pen. The image is over 50 years old - from an old scrapbook filled with movie stars that I bought at a junk shop many moons ago, I've been wanting to do something with the images for a long time. Do you know who she is? I do, but only from the name that was on the photo. This isn't someone I would instantly recognize.

I have no idea, but she is a beauty. Old movie star photos are great, pre digital beauty. Great spread Stephanie.

WOW! How interesting! I like seeing the stages it went through. I don't recognize the picture. But how fun!

Wow, these two pages are HOT! I love the work you laid over the portrait - that's a great combo.

I really like it too, and like seeing the stages it went through.

Gorgeous! Love the spread. I don't know who she is, but she has the look, doesn't she? I also enjoyed seeing the process. Very cool.

Thank you everyone for your kind words! The actress is Ginger Rogers - she was a famous dancer - used to dance with Fred Astaire.
