No time to settle down
I'm a young woman
and I ain't done runnin' round!

The 3 Muses Challenge: Create a digital image inspired by words
PSE 2 / I created the back-ground curtain of 12 abstracted layers from photo images of Harlem , New York that I found in the NY Public Library Archives; 1 of them was a PD image of a cubist-inspired cloth design from the period by Sonia Delaunay and 1 a royalty-free rayed effect for back- lighting .
All the images of the women were taken in the 1920's period; and are all from the NYPL Archives/10 Layers of photos
They include performers Ethel Waters, Bessie Smith, Josephine Baker and Florence Mills.
The group on the left - Vivienne, Phyllis and Ethel are members of the Northeasterner's Women's club. Behind Bessie is a chorus line.
The Font: Zelda, natch! ...... as the old song goes...who could ask for anything more?
Total layers: 24
