Lesson 3 - Patterns

Lesson three is a two page spread. This was fun. Fighting the urge to pull out paint, buttons or embellishments is much harder than I thought. I moved everything around at least a dozen times. I like it... but I still need to loosen up a little. I think I will try to do another spread using no people pics and make the background the main focal. Oops... that might be the reason for Lesson 3.

Gluebook Lesson 2 - Size

This is a 3 piece challenge... a background and two others. I made two pages. With the elements I chose they almost look as much like a scrapbook page as a collage, but that's okay. I like the one on the right the best. It must be the softer colors. Need to chose them more often. Having fun learning!

Miss Mary - Green Paper Challenge

Mary at Green Paper issued a challenge to make an ATC, assemblage, gluebook or journal page using three pieces or elements of the 3 pieces. The rest is up to us to use what we wish. Since I am just beginning my lessons, I decided to work on a gluebook page. Drop by Green Paper download a "Miss Mary Hayes Challenge Sheet" and play along.

My Vintage Gluebook Lesson 1 - Composition and Color/Materials

Ugh... Mary was right. Not so pretty. I think I cut off the part of the color that actually coordinate. I need to chose better materials. Good thing I signed up for lessons in collage.
