On creating a new collection

Just got back from our vacation in Hawaii (more on that later) and I’m wasting no time and in full swing taking another Lilla Rogers class. This one is focusing on Home Decor, a huge category with lots of room for many different styles. The first week is all about creating with metal, so I did a painted metal tray and some birdie napkin rings for my submission. Here are some sketches and my final layout.

and the final submission for the class. I’ll see where this collection goes in the next few weeks as I expand it.
