Composition for Collage - Homework 1

(A Woman of the World)
"Teacher! Teacher!
I've done my homework, teacher!"

Our first task was to make an asymmetrical collage.
Claudine Hellmuth - all hail the teacher - provided loads of background material
and information for us to watch and read.

Do you remember me saying previously that
I had no aspirations to copy Claudine's style?
Well, I don't quite know what happened but, OOPS! 
I kinda copied her style (with the lady's clothing).

Darn it!

Let's see if she notices........
and in the meantime I'll have another, 
more original, try.

There's still a couple of days to join in 
with the fun in class,
just click on the button on my right hand sidebar
for more information.

Teacher's pet!!
I'm still thinking about mine - hope to do it tomorrow.
Love yours Joanna.
Hugs xx
p.s. do you think I'll get detention if I hand it in late? lol

Yours is so clever.
Rushed to make mine. All that vintage stuff really turns my muse to drink so i created one from my collection of torn up images from magazines, mostly Teen Vogue. So far I've discovered from Kelly's class, i can't write in a journal, and now i know that i do not know anything about composition.

Ooh! Moi does like this! Is that Bette Dais in the small pic? Looks like her... but I am bleary eyed and bloodshot from needing my bed.

I think this is a mash up of you and Claudine. (She says acting like she totally knows Claudine's style. *ahem*) Either way - it's fabulous dahlink!

Oh my gosh you are right about the ball on my ATC! It does look like a Pokemon ball! LOL!! I just want it to stand out more from the background and went with red! Lol! To funny! The ball actually goes with the little girl, it was one picture I cut up!
