Hacking at Magazines

I’ve been doing collage again – the none digital kind with scissors, glue and a pack of glossy magazines.  I was inspired by a character from Jacqueline Wilson’s “Lola Rose” – a little girl who lives out her fantasy life by cutting bits out of magazines, birthday cards and stickers and constructing images from them.

Those images sounded so cool I had to try making one myself – quite crude, as it turned out:

I had to add a drawn background as the collaged version I tried first time round came out thoroughly depressing.
