As you can see, I've been collaging again. Most of you have heard about the Joel Lambeth annual collage challenge called To The Power of N. I was chosen among twelve international collagists to participate. We each received identical pieces of paper, with both text and images, and a piece of A4 black mat board. Our brief is to produce a collage on the board from only the pieces provided.
The twelve pieces we were given are here, back and front:
Looks easy you say? Not so....that is until I began. I moved papers around for ages looking for something that sparked an idea. Then I found two faces of similar size and thought...'Haha, these could each be part of the other'. That made me think of the title "Metamorphosis" which in turn made me think of caterpillars and butterflies. Some of the other pieces of paper were then turned into origami butterflies. Hooray... problem solved.
That wasn't enough for me...now I was having all sorts of ideas...and there were so many bits of paper left!...all I needed was a piece of mat board (my stash provided this). True to form I just HAD to do another (as if one wasn't enough).

He's having another challenge called "Carry The One" in which anyone can participate. If you want to challenge your imagination, try it.
