Do you know Anna May Wong? I have to confess that I didn't - but I do now! What a fascinating person: she was the first Chinese-American movie actress. Chris, of CS Designs, has designed a gorgeous image of Anna May, which is perfect for the new theme at Art With No Boundaries: Performing Arts.
She was born in 1905 in Los Angeles. She would skip school to watch photo shoots in her neighborhood. You can read all about her here. My project was influenced by this 1932 magazine cover:
Take note of the faint sunburst pattern in the background. You'll see that repeated in my project.
Anna May was quite exotic and you should google her to see all the wonderful photographs of her. I used grays and pinks and added some dark gray stripes just for fun. I think with the nose shaded wide she looks a bit tigerish. This card is a Z fold with the middle section showing the drama queen sentiment and film strip also from CS Designs. I printed the Anna May Wong image tiny enough to add to the strip.
The last page includes the "Cinema" sentiment and has space for me to write a sweet note to my friend, who will love this! (She's quite the self-admitted drama queen herself.)
Come join us at Art With No Boundaries for our Performing Arts challenge. We'd love to see your creations!
