Here are some collage-lite images (ie I just laid them on the scan bed, following minimal cutting and no sticking at all). I’ve had the Tesco bagel pics on my shelf for ages, hanging around for the right companions. Yesterday I picked up a copy of slick music paper Loud & Quiet, which is brimming with eye-catchy images – and my little bagel collage conundrum was instantly resolved.
This is a card I made for my boyfriend for our anniversary. I had some patterned papers around the house and decided they would make good jumpers – the grey pattern is from a jar of M&S chutney and the pink stars pattern is from a take away menu at Wagamamas. For the envelope, I undertook the fastest ‘how to’ ever and turned an old envelope inside out.
Here’s a detail from a collage I made for the super, creative blog Amelia’s Magazine. It’s an illustration for Amelia’s interview with Adrian Edmondson about his band The Bad Shepherds. You can read the article (and see the rest of my picture!) at ameliasmagazine.com.
This week I have been playing with paper for a commission I’ve been working on (for more info, watch this space). I had some bits and pieces left over, so I made this little crew of oddball creations. Each of them just evolved naturally as I stuck shapes together and they began to remind me of something, at which point I added eyes (and beaks). By the way, that’s a hairy arm attached to the brain-monster, top right. I like the curious birds and my very own Weeping Woman. If you’d like to see more of my papercut work, go to Cargo Collective.
