1st week square blog

The theme of the square I got for the first was "Vanitas"

I didn't understand what a Vanita was, so I looked it up on google. I found that a vanita was a still-life painting of a 17th-century Dutch genre containing symbols of death or change as a reminder of their inevitability. I looked over some images and decided to print the picture I chose on photography paper. I incorporated many aspects of the painting into my square by cutting them out. I still thought the image looked a little dead, so I added green to liven things up.
