Squaring Up

Welcome to weeks 8 and 9 of the collage project I’m doing with Carolyn, following the prompts in The Collage Workbook by Randel Plowman. The prompt for week 8 was reassemble – cut an image into approximately equal squares and rearrange them to create a new image. Here’s what I did:

This is a print of one of my own photos cut up into squares and reassembled. This is the original image:

This was quick and easy and fun to do. Next is week 9 and the prompt was squares and rectangles. We had to choose 2 or more images and cut them into squares and rectangles and  then create a collage using the pieces. Here’s what I did:

A Winter Seascape - NB

This collage measures 8″ x 8″ and is created entirely from my own art work and photography except for one small square which happens to be a piece of scrapbook paper. Each square of this collage is a work of art in it’s own right! Please click on the image to view it larger to see more of the details. At the bottom section of the collage you have the yellow ochre sand with rocks, seaweed and rock pools. In the middle section you have the sea ~ a mixture of turquoise, greens, rich inky indigo and prussian blue tones. Towards the top of the collage I see a distant shoreline topped with moody grey and blue sky.

There will be more collage fun next week – thank you for visiting!
