Funeral Bouquet by fishingonastar Funeral Bouquet by fishingonastar
Yay, photograms!

I learned this technique at art camp. It's almost like an X-ray that brings objects a different life to them.

UPDATE: Oh my goodness, that was unexpected. Thank you VERY VERY MUCH to [link] for nominating this for a daily deviation and for everyone who comments and faves it. It's a huge honor! I'm sorry I can't thank you all personally for the favorites, but I do my best to respond to all comments on your wall :)

For those who wondered the technique: A photogram is made in a darkroom with photo-sensitive paper. I took props, a small plastic bouquet and ribbon with toy skeleton hands in this case, and laid it over the photosensitive paper, and then shined a flashlight on it for, oh, I think about 8 seconds.
