Vintage Collage

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to take a Lynne Perrella masterclass on Saturday in Warrington and this is the piece I made.  It's a multi-media vintage collage made using many different materials and techniques,  The main image was supplied but the rest was down to us to decorate and layer as we so desired.  I was wearing a multi-coloured striped shirt and used the colours in this as my colour palette.

The pics are taken without the frame and glass as the reflections are a menace when trying to photograph.  The final image is taken with the frame and it measures 42 x 32cm and is 4cm deep.

Showing the top flower detail and the pennant top.

Details of the hat embellishment made with paper flower, roses, feather and grungeboard leaves. The hatband is made from jute ribbon and applied on red line tape.

Eye detail coloured with sponges and matt acrylic paints.

Paper diamonds mounted on foamboard to mirror the pennant shape and to add dimension.

Detail of neck embellishment made from stamped grungeboard, metal foil flower, button and pearls over a painted paper doiley. Finished with a blue pearly hatpin.

The final image above shows the collage in its glass fronted frame which I kept matt black to pull in the black feather.
