More Mixed Media Beginnings

Experimenting with photography in the darkroom is where my interest in mixed media began.  I was very interested in altering photographs and especially giving them a dream-like quality.  The images below were again shot with film and done by hand in the darkroom, no Photoshop or digital alterations.  A custom negative holder was created to give the photos very soft and 'torn' edges.  The negatives were exposed through a sheet of tissue paper, which gives them a very soft and distorted quality. 

It has been quite some time since I've shot & experimented with film, maybe its time to get out the old Pentax or Holga.
