Welcome to week 4 of a collage project I’m doing with my sister Carolyn, following the prompts from Randel Plowmans book The Collage Workbook. This weeks prompt is colour charge – add colour to a collage that’s primarily black and white. Here’s what I did:
This is a vintage black and white collage coloured with a fairly bright orange. I’ve used orange printed material and orange oil pastel. This collage measures approx. 6″ x 6″.
For this collage I printed out some of my own black and white photographs and cut them up for the collage base. Then I added rusty colours in the form of watercolour paint, rusty paper scraps and some fabric – both from my erosion bundle material. This collage measures 8″ x 8″.
This is the third week of the collage project I’m doing with my sister Carolyn, following the prompts in The Collage Workbook by Randel Plowman. Also it’s lovely to now have a number of other people joining in with our project. This week’s prompt is black and white. I did two black and white collages….
The first collage is more traditional black and white tones and the second is vintage style….
Both collages measure 8″ x 8″ and I have used some erosion bundle papers in both collages. Both are more complex in design than previous week’s collages.
I’m really enjoying this collage project and already my mind is working on next week’s theme….
Both these images are of the docks in Bridgwater, Somerset, UK. I decided to make them black and white – I love black and white images and the colours weren’t really relevant to these particular images anyway.
This is the beautiful little fishing village of Mousehole, in Cornwall, UK. It’s very old fashioned and uncommercialiized, it has lovely old buildings and very narrow streets. The harbour is beautiful too. I’ve converted it to a sepia toned image and added some vintage textures too.
Two versions of the same image. I like them both for different reasons. I like the high contrast black and white tones/textures in the above image and I also like the colours and textures of the image below…
