It's in her gypsy blood

The Canvas Corp #ccbchallenge is going on so Let's Visit the Cinema!  This is the 2nd of two entries for me!    

When I think of the word 'cinema', I think of the old-time movies before the fancy computer-generated imagery and special effects ~~ I'm even talking before sound, my friends.

The Talkies is where it all started & since we're talking Canvas Corp and the fact that they encompass the 7gypsies brand, I had to do something gypsy.

This is an homage to art and gypsies and, more importantly, the contributions of Pola Negri to her art - the cinema! She was the quintessential gypsy of her time in films, starring in Gypsy Blood in 1918.

I found a couple pics of Pola in B&W & added some color in Photoshop. I also added some canvas, acetate film strip, cheesecloth, stitching, and Sari ribbon.

A sentiment from Architextures Parchment Rub-ons...     

A smattering of Tattered Angels Coffee Shop & Iridescent Silver Glimmer Mist adds some sparkle & shine ~~ and you have to have a pair of Angel Wings because gypsies are free spirits...  

A couple more shots in different cinematic tones for your viewing pleasure... thank you for coming & I hope you enjoyed the show!
