April in Paris



I can't think of Paris without thinking of Gene Kelley.  The background was made by pouring Citra-Solv onto the pages of an old National Geographic.  If you haven't tried this, I recommend it, just for the mind-blowing experience of looking at the results.

CitraSolv is an orange-based cleaner. When you put it on magazine photos, it dissolves the ink in really cool ways. They even have an artists' website, located here: http://www.citra-solv.com/newcitraartist/index.html

Thank you, everyone for your kind comments!
