Today was Karen Michel's "Gridlock Collage". I've wanted to take a class from Karen for so long. Again, another great teacher! I finished 2 small pieces! yay!

First I prepared my wood:

Then I painted my backgrounds:

Then I collaged my little pieces:

Then I did a lot more, lol. Then I was finished!!! They even have hanger things on the back!

The colours of the finished pieces are a bit off.... They look great in person :) Can you guess which one I made for Lauren?

The photos are OK, but the look so much better in person. I love them and want to try something like this at home.
