Microfilm anyone?


A couple weeks ago I was very fortunate to be gifted with a HUGE box full of microfilm and another HUGE box full of microfiche that the library was getting rid of. Lets just say if rolls of microfilm & envelopes of microfiche were money, I'd be off living it up on a beach in the Caribbean right about now.

The Looker, 4x8 on cradled hardboard

Here is my first attempt at using some of my new acquired materials in a collage. I was worried at first that the gel medium wouldn't work with the film or that my spray fixativ wouldn't stay put, but I'm happy to say that I didn't have any problems with the film at all.



So I'll definitely use it in future collages...probably every collage...for the rest of my life. Did I mention that I have a LOT of microfilm & microfiche at my house?


If you'd like to take some of it off of my hands, I'd be happy to send it out and spread the wealth a bit. Just shoot me an e-mail at lislis32@hotmail.com and let me know your name and address.
