Bird with map body.

Fabulous Collage and Mixed Media Workshop with Bethany produced the two artworks below.

Bethany arrived for her workshop with no preconceived ideas other than perhaps using the two little children that she digitally printed and cutout ‘William and Olivia’ from her own photographs.  When playing with chance you need to give yourself lots of materials to select from.   All the backgrounds and cutout images will not be used even if you love them sooo much – unless they work well alongside another image, an image cannot stand alone, it must relate to another image and so on to create your assemblage.  You can always save the unused ones and file them away for another time if they don’t work this time.

      Thanks. Bethany came armed with talent and digital pics. The children just had to appear somewhere.

    Well, that doesn’t seem so hard to make after all.

      That’s right, it is a very simple process but it is also unique to the individual that makes it and how it is layered (in this case – ink, depth of ink, organic shapes in ink, map is also organic in shape and yet bird-like and then the image of bird head and feet just fit together so perfectly then selectively cropped into a circle. But as I said it is unique to one persons eye. Hope you like it.
