HOLY pumpkin!

my collage homework is finished! here it is- all out of hole punchings and pilar beads (my new obsession) and a few real candy corn!
***for illustration friday, after making this i'm going to have to send my hole-puncher in for "REPAIR"*** :-)

melissa (friend/roommate etraordinaire) made a masterpiece with the pilar beads while i was hole-punching away. (i did offer her $5 to help me hole punch. she declined)
ANYWAY here is her art:

HOLY cow!

collage class homework!!

the assignment for this one is to create a self portrait, using only solid paper where you are recognizable AND part animal. I didn't really feel like making myself part animal, so i dressed myself as a butterfly :-)
I did use all cut paper, and scanned it in to digitally assemble! here's the piece and a detail of it- let me know what you think because i still have a few days (after my florida trip) to make revisions!!!

I'm going to Disney World....

for a meeting tomorrow! :-)
thought i'd share a back with a lot of art this weekend!!
