Yesterday I took a class at A Work of Heart where we made a Tim Holtz style collage. This is my finished collage! I think it came out nicely. It’s not my usual style so I’m not sure where I’ll put it yet, but the thought was the kitchen.
My favorite part was the old dictionary pages. Granted, it felt a little wrong to be ripping pages out of a book, but I opted for pages that were either amusing or meant something. The left one is stitch diagrams which I thought apropos and I attached the buttons and fabric tape measure to that. The middle one is a “ruptured duck” which is apparently a symbol for discharge from the army but I was highly amused by the term “ruptured duck” so I went with it and decorated it with wings (it is a duck after all) and a crown. And on the right is a walrus which I also thought was cute. So I framed him. The rest is just random stuff.
The store looked cool and if I need scrapbooking stuff, now I know where to go! They also have lots of other classes and do private events which I will keep in mind for the future.
