Hope Springs Eternal - Collage # 1

Hello and welcome!  I recently was visiting a blog and came across a post where the artist was working through a book called The Collage Workbook.  I am sorry to say I cannot find the blog or the artist who so kindly shared the information in her post, but I am so happy to have found it.  My copy of the book arrived today and the first of fifty exercises encourages you to make five collages in twenty-five minutes.  You are encouraged to pull a pile of scraps together, set a timer for five minutes and just go for it.  I only made one collage, but I sure had fun.  I grabbed a piece of white card stock 5" x 5" and started gluing down scraps of paper, an image from Gecko Galz, bits of lace and string and other odds and ends that were simply laying on my work space.  I adhered the finished collage to a card base.  My card is for one of my friends who is fighting a courageous health challenge.  I "hope" she likes it.  Thanks for dropping by.  Hugs, Yvonne

Beautiful collage. I may take longer than 5 minutes but it will be something I will try.
