vintage GlueBook class

vintage GlueBook Class 11, originally uploaded by creativelenna.
I have been taking a class-what fun for me, since I am usually the one teaching online! In the "Your Vintage Gluebook" class that I've been taking, we're finishing up the last lesson. This 3 week online workshop (with 9 lessons) was taught by Mary Green, who was awesome! I think she really rocked as an instructor. I learned a lot about composition, something I naturally do with not too much trouble, but armed with the information Mary gave me, I had a new outlook to approach my art. It was very refreshing!!

The class was held on a password protected blog page with an addition of a flickr group so that anyone in the class who wished could share their progress as they worked. To view the very large body of impressive student work, please go here.

The background papers used in my spread above of ocean life and flowers come from a download of Antique French Dictionary Illustration pages I found on Mary's e-shop: Green Paper Packages. I just love the ocean one especially!! (Both my husband Steven and dear friend Frieda like this ocean/fluers vintage gluebook spread the best of all I've done).

Even though the live blog posts are over, the class is still open to join and all the lessons are available. The class blog will remain open for 7 months after the end of class - through December 31st -- Click here to view more details about the class. It was truly one of the best things I have done for myself creatively in a long time!! (Thank  you, Mary. All your hard work is much appreciated).
