I am loving working in a digital way. I thought it wasn’t as intuitive and expressive as working with paper – but I found I working on darker/ shade collages seemed to bring out a different side of me – these seem to connect with other people if one goes by comments and likes
‘Truth’ surprised me – it felt like I was drawn to the woman’s eyes – something about being seen and needing to be accountable
Above we had to write our own fairy tale – I liked the idea of a girl walking through and enchanted forest with a group of charmed animals to keep her safe
‘Conflict ‘ was a bit weird – the rabbit and the chicken were part of the same ‘cutout’ offered by Freemix – I liked the repetition of the face and the evil look on face of the chicken
Zebra – the interlaced stripes and over lays felt like fields of bones
This was ‘darkness’ I liked layering the buildings and adding the figures – the female has a different head in Freemix – I like that you can chop bits off images and add them in layers to other bits really easily. I am a away for a bit and can’t access my own photos – this seems to make quite a difference to the final outcome in-terms of making collages with some originality. The above images are a mixture from Shelley Klammer and the second week of ICAD 2018
Every June and July Daisy Yellow/ Tammy Garcia / gypsy999 posts 61 prompts for you to follow. The suggestion is that you make small index card pieces. This year I am enjoying the digital collages so much I am continuing with those.
The first week of prompts are all about fairgrounds:
I am having great fun blending using image blender, using found images (some from the internet ) and adding cutouts using the Freemix App.
