My Collage Book (all images are 8x10)

I have finally finished this project. Initially I only worked on this thrift store teachers planning book at work. Whenever I could I would glue things in when I had a few spare minutes or needed sometime away from proper work. Realizing that I would never be able to finish it there, I brought the thing home…that was over a year ago. Just yesterday I finished the last page. Some of the pages are great while others are a little hard to look at, but at least I can see the changes in my creations over a long period of time. I’ve already started the next one.
