Finished 1st Week Project for Claudine Helmuth's Online class!

My finished Asymmetrical Collage for my online class with Claudine Hellmuth at Big Picture Class

In my post earlier I went through the steps I was taking to complete my project (HERE).  I wasn't sure if I was going to give this a Title or a verse.  I tend to gravitate towards Jane Austen as my partner in the studio room.  If I am in there Pride & Prejudice is most likely on the screen, I know almost every word.  I got to thinking about all the letters Elizabeth received and a light bulb went off.... there must be something that will be perfect for my collage in P&J.

Text:  “The contents of this letter threw Elizabeth into a fluter of spirits, in which it was difficult to determine whether pleasure or pain bore the greatest share.” Jane Austen - Pride & Prejudice 

I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed creating my first project in class.

That turned out so beautifully! I love how the one bird leaves the others to bring the letter! And what's not to like about Jane Austen? I love this.
