Collage Making – Boost Week

For booster week I have decided to kick the week off with making a collage the collage could be the base for a larger work, but as of yet it is undecided.

I have been inspired to make this work following a positive experience in regards to a magazine the magazine was printed on low gloss, Demi-matte paper and the colours had such a vibrancy that I found myself more interested in the patterns and photo shoots rather than the content

This shows the final collage, this took a while to make and features circles of the magazine that inspired me, in my mind this looked a lot more vivid and had turned out a little foggy in practice, so I made a second smaller collage just to see what the piece would look like with a layer of shiny placstic over the top. This was not as successful and I am glad this was done to a maquette and not the original piece.
