Vicki's Challenge and Gluebook Class

Vicki's Challenge: My friend Vicki issued a challenge to create anything "out of the box". This was the perfect time to try a gluebook since I have always wanted to make one. The fact that Mary's online class started today worked right in with the challenge.

Mary of Green Paper creates beautiful gluebooks and is offering an online class focusing on collage.
The layout above is my first ever gluebook page that I made for today's class. The image is a copy of a 1912 watercolor of my grandmother that hangs in my dining room. The music is from one of her books. Other images and ephemera were provided by Mary.

Your gluebook page is great. I can see Mary's inspiration in it, but you've added your own touches and really made it your own.

OOOOhhhh that is so lovely! I have been having a go too after I saw Louise's pages this afternoon. I love collage and the fact that it's just paper is a lovely challenge too!
