I am really intrigued by what people have found amusing throughout the ages, so when I was brainstorming ideas, my mind went on the track of the vintage era. I came up with the idea of vintage toys and vintage photography, but as I was sketching, I felt much more inspired by vintage photography. I began with the basic outline of one camera with picture frames surrounding it and began finding images online, in magazines, and images that I created with different found materials. Other materials that I used that created the vintage feeling of when photography was first being used and the amusement that people found through it were old newspaper, tissue paper, and I also experimented with the technique of pen on watercolor. Overall, I am really happy with how this turned out. It is nothing like what I pictured it might turn out when I was first getting started, but that's the beauty of mixed media-there are no mistakes! I think that this image really portrays what I was intending to accomplish with my theme but it a new and unique way!
