Collage Club: Little & Big

This month’s theme for The Collage Club is ‘Little & Big‘ which is straightforward and inspiring all at once.

I’m finding there’s a real cross-pollination of inspiration, technique and creativity between my collage and art journaling work just now, but I wasn’t sure what to do for this at first.

Then I found this fashion image of a woman – a femme fatale? – all minxy and peering down as if on lesser mortals.

And so it came into being; the faces glancing up at her from below, far beneath her in the hierarchy – of life and perhaps also of beauty.

Some of the girls look confused, panicked, fearful, while others are rising to the challenge. She herself is all sweeping eyebrows, oozing a mischievous malice that contrasts perfectly with the frothy confection of ruffles and feather-fronds that spill from the page.

Oversized ego. Oversized hair. Exaggerated shoulders.

Little & big. Angles & curves. Hard & soft. Light & dark.

So this month’s image is surreal in pastel blue, and I felt the urge to draw on it too (the art journal influence).

    I love the blue colourway! The femme fatale is rather creepy and puppet like, leering over the others. I like your take on little and big and how it relates to opposites, and the art journalling really adds something to it. Great you can combine it all together x

      Leering is a good way to describe her – I like that! I really enjoyed this one so might try and do another one for this theme before the month is out xx
