31 Days of Collage #1

31daysofcollage #1

|Collage 1 of 31|

For August I wanted to give myself a little challenge/task to complete. Recently I’ve been following and been inspired by a lot of collage artists so I figured I’d do 31 Days of Collage.

Every day I’ll make and post a new collage (digital or physical collage depending on time constraints within that day)

I’m also thinking that at the end of the month it would be nice to offer them as prints if people are interested.

Textures- Works in Progress

Spent a couple of hours in Photoshop extracting and putting together some diagram, texture and collage pieces ready to transfer to paper. Many of these diagrams are taken from the British Library’s public domain albums on Flickr.

These will make up the base textures to a coupe of artworks that will be submitted to exhibitions over the next couple of weeks.

I’m planning to print, cut and paste some parts and image transfer some parts using both gel medium and acetate printing techniques. Once on the paper the textures will be drawn, painted and inked over.
