I did the first project, but not on a large enough piece of watercolor paper so I only got one "cutting from it. I pasted that to a notecard because I like snail mail and this type of collage is the perfect "throw away" art. I didn't do the cradle board because I don't haven any hanging around the house and they really aren't "me".
On the other hand, I love that this class is getting me out of my comfort zone and making me trust the process. I'm going to explore more of this art form. I find it really interesting and have wanted to do mixed media for some time.
No idea why it is sideways, ghosts in the machine is my guess.
