Letting My Freak Flag Fly



I can scan! I can scan! I can scan! Magenta left me very specific written instructions about scanning and e-mailing an image to myself, so I was able to post this new collage. What started as a journal page evolved into this self-portrait and entry for The Layers of Color Challenge. "Must be because I had the bluuuuuues for Christmas...." Thanks to Mr. Alberta for the use of his 70's Guy tube socks, to Michael Stipe for his body double, and, of course, to Obama for his words of inspiration. Happy Fourth of July!
