Green Paper January Collage Challenge


Well, it's the first of the month and Mary at Green Paper has a new challenge posted. She's given us a beautiful collage sheet to work with again this month. Her challenge is to use at least a piece of each image in the collage sheet to create a new piece. I've used the sheet in my vintage Gluebook. My Gluebook is getting so fat it won't lay right on my scanner any longer so I have to take photos of it on my desk. I made a two page spread with the images Mary gave us and some other paper bits. The piece at the bottom that looks like a gate is actually cut from some Christmas wrapping paper from one of my presents. I thought it was so pretty and saved it hoping to use it in something and here it is! If you'd like to see the collage sheet Mary is offering and play along be sure to visit Green Paper to take a look!

This is beautiful, Linda. So romantic! I love how you cut the couple out, something I did not try. They really stand out that way!

Mary said...

Beautiful! And in your gluebook - yippee!!! I love how these pages turned out!

This is so gorgeous, Linda. I agree with Lenna, I love how the people really stand out from the background. Lovely.
