GLUEBOOK





I am taking Mary Green's online Vintage Gluebook class. Mary's great, and what attracted me to this class are the beautiful images that Mary supplies (and of course you can use your own too), and the idea that you only need to work with paper and glue. It is basic in concept but teaches you so much about composition, color, and design. I am really enjoying it. These are the pieces I have done so far, the first starting at the top to the most recent at the bottom. The bottom one was today's lesson of challenging yourself to only work with 3 different pieces of paper. I found it very hard, but very useful.
All you have to do is check out Mary's blog and you will be so inspired!
Thanks for visiting!
