Collage composition week 2

Week 2 of Claudine's Composition for Collages workshop was all about horizons - I was still having printer issues but obviously wanted to play along asap so I knocked out these three pieces - all 7"x5" so I can mount them onto cards if I want to at a later date - they really didn't take me long at all but its more the process of understanding horizons rather than spending hours creating (like I usually do!) - hope you like them:


Yes I know the car is far too big but I wanted to use it!


Simple inked bird on a branch - brick wall is Tims die matted over a tea dye inked strip - the Happy Birthday banner is just to break up the wall and isn't actually stuck down at the moment! If I use it for a card then that will probably be done in a different coloured ink.


Yet another Christmas scene - never too early to start Christmas stuff in my opinion!  Loving my new Victorian Carollers die (can you tell!).  Just wish I had placed her a bit further in before sticking!

Have now sorted out printer issues so hopefully my new few pieces might actually be collages!

Thanks for looking - off to teach a scrapbooking class at Hobbycraft - whoo hoo - from Solihull

Hmmn. I might have to go and have a wander and look at this. I do love the carollers die though I don't have it. Shhh I borrowed my friend's last year!
Not sure about NEC yet. Big holiday afoot!
