Vintage Nude ATC Swap

"I have danced naked"

As most of you know, I love vintage nudes and as it's difficult to find swaps I always join as soon as I spot one. This one is on the ATCsforAll site and could feature any medium.

I went for backgrounds of fabric/paper collages and selected transparencies (from Alphastamps Nudes #1, 2 and 3 sheets) to be stitched onto these backgrounds.

French seems to be the language par excellence to go with vintage nude images and that's what I used. The text on the one above translates as: "You are my well-beloved one"

"The little courtesane"

"Beautiful female shapes"

And finally here is the one I made to keep for myself with the text: "Yes, you love me"
