Fabric Collage

Well it looks like I barely finished one online class before going to another. The latest one for me is the KC Willis Collage Camp. I am so glad that my friend and shopping buddy Robin talked me into taking this one. I guess it's payback because I talked her into Mary Green's Gluebook Class!

This is my first attempt at fabric collage. I am pleased with the results and will hang this in my guest bath in keeping with a vintage beach theme that I have going on in there. The size is approx. 9 X 12.

I added part of a fish net that Robin and I bought at a thrift store. The sea shells are some that I picked up on a trip to Pensacola Beach, FL a few years ago. I added a few gold charms for a little bling.
