The Diving Girl Altered Art Collage

This is a piece of my altered artwork featuring a vintage photograph of a small girl in her vintage swimsuit. Isn't she cute? She's posed as a diving girl and just looks to be having so much fun. I've attached the photograph to a canvas board and used bits and pieces of vintage lace, paper and cloth as a collage on the surface. I love working with collage as a medium in my artwork. I enjoy combining different pieces of empherma to create collages, with paper as my main medium of choice. The sepia tone of the image works well with vintage fabrics. This particular piece becomes three dimensional with the addition of a threaded lace panel across the front.
