30 Days of Collage
Hello I'm back from a short break spending time with my family over the Easter school holidays.
Alongside Bootcamp I'm also doing Stephanie Levy's e-course, 30 Days of Collage which, I hope, will both help to inform and create future work. http://www.stephanielevy.com/30-days-of-collage/
I've had such fun creating the following two pieces based on warm and cool colour palettes.
I don't really have a specific process for creating collage other than a habit of collecting collage materials and sketchbooks full of my mad ideas!
I love creating collage because I'm not concerned about the outcome and my mind is free to wander off on its own tangent ultimately ending in a finished piece such as this one which I've titled Chronic Lack of Water. This piece started out with my 9 year old son's drawing of a bee, honeycomb and scary looking flower. The umbrella is an experiment with the tape transfer method described in Stephanie's course and the text is from a magazine article.

My second piece entitled Two Times Nine utilises a cool colour palette and is based around the little hands icon which teaches a method for learning the 9 Times Tables. I love how the tissue paper alters the collaged papers beneath it.
