lessons three and four

For these lessons I attempted to combine patterns in a pleasing way and also use the golden mean theory of placement.  My collage is done on a 5.5 inch square and I wanted the colors/patterns to be soft and muted.  Added a bit of gold paper trim and punched flowers plus gold metallic ink around the perimeter - couldn't resist the urge to add some bling!

Now I am somewhat caught up with Mary's class until tomorrow.  It is so much fun to see the creations of others who are taking the class.  So much talent out there!

Thanks for visiting!

well, i love what you have done, joy. The background is really so interesting and I really like how you added extra flowers. They go so well and make it more dimensional, almost like the couple is walking through them! The couple, I love them! Can you imagine I have not done anything with them yet?? What a great job you did! You do need to put forth effort to keep up with mary's classes : ))
