This weeks collage work

This weeks all round parallel design I made at collage

Well exams are done :-) only 4 weeks left in this year and then starts my second year in my floral classes :-)

I have added some of my pieces on a new page the link is on the right if you
would like to have a look, all comments welcome xxx

I wasnt completely happy with this design, I wish I had used roses instead of lizzies, as much as I love Lizzies in warm weather they wilt and that is what has happened here, and they have lost their parallel lines :-(

Also I wish I had used a softer foliage as pitta can be a bit over powering and the aspra leaves were a little large and had to be rolled several times, been better to use a smaller leaf.

Thanks for looking

Dylan's card and CES Challenge card

I made this card for a little boy called Dylan, He is a 9 yr old boy recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor (Diffused Pontine Glioma) His blog is here My family was so touched by his story I made this card for him, so we could send him some love. I found out about this story from Dustin pike's site where I got dylan's free digi, at the moment they have a great bug so dont miss out on it.

I combined it with the CES Challenge taking the inspiration from the picture they are using, I used the checked pattern and the brown of the bed to make the backing, and the shape of the bed, made me think of my cutter I used,  the brads to represent the knobs on the chest of draws and of course Dylan the dinosaur's nice green and the ribbon colour represents the green of the stems of the flowers on the table.

I do hope he likes it, im off to the post office to send it :-)

Thanks for looking and please go over to Dustin Pike and show your support for Dylan
