I've been creating a big mess with my scissors and glue this afternoon. Taking me back to childhood when I used to cut things out of my dad's discarded mail order catalogues.
Just recently I have become interested in moths and thought they were an ideal subject to start with. My first tiny paper collage moth has "emerged". It is made up of old magazines, junk mail and an old school atlas. I will cut out tiny antenna later instead of just drawing them with ink pen. The first is the original colour and then I played around with the hues and saturation.
The intention is to create around 9 or 12 of these in different shapes and colours and mount them on contrasting backgrounds to create a tiled affect suitable for a greeting card.
