“Landscapes” with Allan

The theme for this week is collage landscapes.  Here are some examples to help inspire you;

‘Cell’ by Jill Frost                                  

  • In ‘Forest Collage’ I was inspired by a painting –  “Cell” by Jill Frost. 
  • Stage 1– I took a piece of cardboard and I ripped it to reveal the corrugated texture inside. 
  • Stage 2 & 3 – For the ground texture and foliage I took some brown paper (the sort you now get as packing in parcels instead of bubble wrap) which I crumpled and then flattened out again. 
  • Stage 4 – I then cut shapes out to resemble tree trunks receding into the distance.
  • Stage 5 – I then stuck the wrinkled paper down and cut some other pieces of cardboard for the foreground tree trunks.                                                                                                    
Materials: cardboard, brown packing paper, scissors , glue.

‘Collage landscape 1’ was created using scraps from old magazines & tissue paper.

‘Collage Landscape’  by Allan Williams                                

‘Cabbage Tree collage’ was taken from old magazines using some cabbage from a food magazine, curtains for the tree trunk and the  women with the flower in her hair becoming part of the landscape’
Materials: Old magazines, coloured paper and/or tissue paper, scissors, glue, backing paper or card (you could also add wrapping paper, bubble wrap or whatever textural or colourful material you have to hand).

I hope you feel inspired to have a go at this at home. You could base your collage on a painting, a photograph of a favourite landscape or simply invent your own landscape – have fun!
