Collage Obsession Challenge #1 "Worn out"

"Worn out"
("kulunut" in Finnish)


Big Ben bell's are tolling midnight in London, so it's time to publish the first challenge.


First challenge is a bit gloomy, but don't let that dilute your inspiration. Use the shabby photo of Sarah Bernhardt. Or express the word "worn out" some how in your collage. Or use both, a photo and a word. Word don't have to show up in your collage.

Post your creation to your blog or other website and leave a comment with a link to your collage.

I can't wait to see your creations.

(Click the image larger and save it to your computer, print it or use digitally. The image is public domain, so you can freely use it also with your other creations).

    No kiva, etta kayt seuraamassa, vaikka et itse osallistuisikaan, vaikkakin voisit ihan hyvin, kollaasinhan voi tehda perinteisesti paperille ja sitten skannata se, sa ainakin osaat piirtaa hyvin, joten mieti viela, ehkapa voit osallistuakin. ;)

    Stephanie
    There is no time limit, but if you want viewers, it's better make the creation and post it before the new challenge comes next Monday.

    I peeked to your blog and I'm sure you could make something fabulous with this challenge.
