more of lesson 4

Here is more of what I did in Lesson 4: Collage Coterie Online Workshop with Mary Green. Mary taught us about 3 x 3 composition and the placement of dominant and supportive images. A scan of my finished spread in my small 3 1/2" x 5" moleskine journal is below -click on it for more detail.

I decided to use scrapbook paper instead of vintage papers as a background for this exercise and to use a white Fabrico' ink pad instead of white paint. It gave a similar look, just lighter, like I wanted. 

I chose my images and placement and added watercolor crayon -
don't tell me you are surprised! 

I finished this with a dictionary quote, some handmade paper and
a bit of german scrap trim.

I  think tomorrow is another lesson already! I have a very large swap to swap out, so I may have to try to resist even looking at it for a bit : ^ ). If you have not checked out creative swaps lately, please do! So much to see!


  1. I like the paper and white ink AND the watercolor crayon here. You always manage to create wonderful pages - don't know how you do all that you do, dear Lenna! But, I am eagerly awaiting my swap outs!!! LOL
