Saturday's Workout

"Recycle-it" is the theme this week at Saturday's Workout. I have used the packaging from an A2 embossing folder to create a dimensional collage. I essentially had 4 surfaces with the package open and applied a transparency frame and rub-ons to the front, a Paper Whimsy image to the inside of the front, another transparency to the inside of the back, and finally paper to the outside of the back. Once it's all closed up it actually has some depth even though it's hard to show it in the photo - and there's the usual difficulties in photographing acetate!

Your artwork is beautiful--I found you through the Paper Whimsy newsletter--the piece you made with the door collage sheet is just wonderful!

PS-What the "Crap Blog Detective" wrote is really rude! I think I'd delete that one--not sure what purpose something like that serves to the author who wrote it.
