One a Day-September 30th, 2011: Number 499

Blog giveaway at the 500th collage to be posted tomorrow (Saturday, October 1st). Post a comment to the blog post and you'll be entered into a drawing for a pendant of your choice from my Etsy shop (link to on the right).

This collage was fun. I have these old magazines that I've finally started to cut up. The following collage came from three different McCalls magazines from 1956, 1960 and 1961.

I had this idea to use pictures of pictures in the magazine, in the "decorating" articles. The background is an abstract, and the others are self-explanatory. I like how the color palette was similar in each piece.

I did find it poetic that there is a picture of pictures in the magazine pictures. There's a name for that, I just can't recall what it is.  The visual art version of a "play within a play".
