Where it all began

Today I am celebrating almost 1 year of posting artwork online. This time a year ago, I searched the internet for any visual art/design competitions I could possibly enter. My search led me to the Re-picture Australia project – not so much a competition, but an invitation for artists and photographers to submit digital montages using historical photos from Australia's archival records. As I have an interest in anything vintage, and this project allowed for total creative freedom, I gave it a go. "The Old Ballroom" was my first creation and includes images from 4 different sources. The images remain the copyright of the Australian Government archives but permission was granted for their use under a creative commons license.
