Collage - Mossy Style

I decided to take JoAnnA Pierotti's new online class, Collage - Mossy Style. This is one of 2 online classes that JoAnnA is currently offering. JoAnnA's class offers a series of videos with simple easy to follow instructions - absolute quality! This is the resulting collage that I created at 2:30 AM this morning.

The collage is on a 5x5 canvas I purchased for 97 cents at Michael's (yes, Michael's). The photograph is from a collage sheet gifted to all who entered Julie Herrmann's giveaway at HeArt Collective during the OWOH (isn't she sweet!). JoAnnA's technique for creating the textured background is really cool. Add a little ephemera and Voila! I am still working on my muddy backgrounds (and my photography), but I am not disappointed with my results at all!
I seem to have a lot of blog catching up to do! Tomorrow...."to the mattresses!"
Stay Creative!

Very creative! I love the mixture of soft and hard
(i.e. flower/ key) elements on this. You should be very happy with your results!

Hi again Lezlei, you've done a fantastic job with your collage...and what a bonus that you managed to score the canvas for 97c It's great when you can pick up bargains like that isn't it? Hugs Naomi from Adelaide, Sth Australia
