the green beak of some bird
I layered mainly vintage papers with a book loving theme.
Y is for yacht
A nautical themed collage with shipbuilding images, a German stamp with ships, a snippet from one of my photographs with sea spray and a label from the Cornwall Soap Box from St. Ives (it smells wonderful).
Vintage papers, magazine image, snippet of original photo and a faded pressed Californian Poppy from the garden.
love at first sight
I used mainly vintage papers with some waxed papers for beautiful texture
Taking two images/papers and re-arranging them into strips which helps focus attention on different elements and patterns in the image.
Throughout this project I have endeavoured to use texture on all of my collages. I like to use small pieces of fabric, stitch, buttons, waxed papers or lavish layering to achieve this. Texture is always a hard thing to photograph, however I love running my hands over each collage in my sketchbook as much as I love considering and choosing the elements of theme and colour.
