Composition for collage online class

I am totally excited. I signed up for the “Composition for collage” class at Big Picture Classes. This is an interesting subject to begin with, but the teacher is Claudine Hellmuth, and that just makes it even more fantastic. The participants come from all over the world and are so creative. It’s amazing!

If you don’t know Claudine’s collages, you have to check out her website! We have two pieces of custom art from her and we love them. If you are looking for the perfect artsy gift look no further. Claudine is very easy to work with and creates exactly what you were looking for.

The first week has started a few days ago and we already learned quite a bit. I create two collages and am really happy with them. Claudine provides lots of class material, but everybody can use their own stash as well.

These are the two collages I came up with so far:


Music in you


Vintage photograph and “It’s fun” tag provided by Claudine. Brushes: Blinding light. Background paper: Christine Newman. Line grid: Christine Borgfeld. Buttons: Jen Wilson. Font: Typenoksidi

Inappropriately dressed


Vintage photograph provided by Claudine. Papers: Jen Wilson. Brush: FlyGuy. Sun: Weeds & Wildflowers. Paper for cloud and paper strip: Nina. Edge: Catrine. Font: Typenoksidi


I have severe problems with my font manager and don’t want to install lots of fonts permanently, so I suppose I will use a lot of “Typenoksidi” in the next future, :).

  1. Hi Rikki
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I am loving the class and want to find time to make some more collages, but I am trying to apply the learning to some DT pieces I am doing.
    I love both of your collages, the colours, the elements and designs, you are a natural so try the paper and glue as well.
    Have a great weekend.
    luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
