New Horizons

Hi everyone. Another quick post with the next piece of homework for Claudine Hellmuth's fabulous 'Composition for Collage' class.
On the face of it this was all about horizon lines, but suddenly my eyes have been opened and I understand why I needed to add the watch parts inside the arrows (and it's not just because the idea worked before!)


This is an IndigoBlu stamp combo I've been trying to put together for weeks (that probably sounds ridiculous!)
To me, 'Mechanics' and the wonderful quote from 'Little Voice' were a match made in heaven but figuring out a design where you could get to see the best of both of them had me foxed until this class. Now I'm a happy bunny :)

Talking of IndigoBlu, don't forget to enter the latest 'Tag You're It' challenge for the chance to win prizes. Right, off to work on more samples for some IB stamps that will be released in the Autumn (OMG they are DIVINE!!!) It's a hard life but someone's gotta live it :)
Take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx

  14. Your 'horizon' composition is fabulous Jenny, I bet Claudine loves it too. Adding the watch parts was so clever of you, they add so much interest and the way you have done the words around the car is such a genius idea. This is one great card! Anne xx
