Black and White at Just for Fun

Another interesting combo to think about this week at Just for Fun. Whenever I think of Black and White I think of Freddie Mercury in his white and black clothes on the last album he made just before he died. I thought his music was amazing and particular the Bohemian Rhasody. Where am I going with this you may well ask?

I decided to use an old frame that was in the shed and paint it white--just a rough coat of paint to make it look rustic, then I made a few things in PSP and juggled them about a bit to make a picture to add to the frame as a tribute to Freddie Mercury. The backing paper is some old music that I bought at the charity shop and scanned into my computer. It was very brown but it wasn't too difficult to use an effect to make it Black and White. The text is from the Bohemian Rhapsody.

My husband just loves the picture and can't wait to hang it somewhere :)
