My friend Mary at Green Paper has come up with another wonderful Online Collage Class! This time it's the Christmas version of her popular Gluebook class!!
Here's a little info that Mary wrote about the class:
"This class enables you to create a sweet 8 page gluebook, filled with vintage holiday collage. You'll also receive ideas to adapt the designs and images into your current gluebook, as well as holiday cards and gift tags. The material is really flexible!
The course contains great composition tips and example pages, with step-by-step pictures to show the collages being created. From image choice, to positioning, to embellishments, you'll see what works - and what doesn't!"
Also included are loads of images, like you see above, on Collage Sheets that you can download and print from home!
The class is self-paced so you can sign up and get started right away! All of the images and info is available as soon as you log on, and the lessons can be downloaded and saved.
The blog will be open indefinitely, but registrations for the class will end on December 31st, so don't wait too long. Get more information HERE.
Also, if you're new to collage, you might want to try her wonderful Collage Basics Class as well!

These lovely Sheet Music Ornaments were crafted by Andrea at Opulent Cottage! Aren't they darling?!! I think it would be so beautiful to do a whole tree with this theme! Andrea used the Santa Head Printable along with some pretty Sheet Music for these festive ornaments!
This is a similar project that I made last year, using a Paper Mache Star instead of the Sheet Music. You can find the tutorial on the same page as the printable. Both projects would work well together I think!

I originally featured these breathtaking Vintage Paper Ornaments, from Theresa at 612 Riverside, last year during my Brag Monday party. But they are so fabulous I wanted to share them again this year!!!
Theresa used the Deer Head Engraving Image for the first Ornament. Just look how she finished the back, it's almost as pretty as the front!!!
And swoon.... I adore this one!!! She used the Vintage Mary Holy Card Graphic and added a lovely rhinestone brooch too! Make sure you check out Theresa's blog, she has a third version of this ornament on her site, and I'm willing to bet if you peruse her blog for a bit you will become a devoted follower!
