Collage Workshop

On the last two days of my journey, I was in Lawrence KS for a collage workshop. The photo above is from the first exercise. The instructor gave us a stack of 5 of her photos plus a word from a magazine, and we were given 15 minutes to complete a collage using all of those elements and a specified design layout. My layout was symmetry.

For the rest of the workshop, we were instructed to bring 4-5 original photos in 3 different sizes. The idea of the workshop was to create 3 collages, using only our photos; then translate those collages into a cloth wallhanging. Instead of bringing a few photos in different sizes, I brought 20 photos in one size. Well, you know me, I started creating collages and never made it to the cloth part of the workshop!
