The class assignment this week was to create a long, skinny collage. The papers used here were harvested from a vintage grade-school text book. And, yes, I’m still working on my adhesive technique! :-)

My collage of the week. I’m not sure about this one as I got kind of carried away with the layering and I’m afraid it’s too busy. 77 more words

So, I had a very-specific concept for this week’s collage but it came out nothing like I envisioned which is kind of strange because I could see it so clearly. 35 more words

The assignment this week: create a collage using warm colors. I’m still having trouble with my adhesive technique. Oh well, next time. Happy Monday, peeps! :-)

Another collage made from vintage imagery. Among the materials used here: an old postcard, origami paper and origami mesh, vintage sheet music and ephemera, and an old Nancy Drew book (never fear, it was falling apart anyway :-)). 9 more words

The assignment this time was to create a collage using a map. I decided on an old Wyoming highway map I had on hand while also incorporating into the mix an old dress pattern (which could also be considered a type of map, I suppose) and book-club receipt, a 1960s-era computer punch card, and a vintage Christmas bookmark. 87 more words
