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).
