This project is perfect!! I have a ton of Vogue magazines because my mom had bought me a three year subscription for my eighteenth birthday. I used to be really into fashion photography so at the time it was the perfect gift, but since then my interests have changed. I hated that all of these issues sat there unread but I kept them anyways because I figured I’d have some use for them in the future. A few weeks back I decided I wanted to begin exploring collage using images found only in these Vogues. Since then I have only had the time to make one piece because of my busy schedule. I loved the process and am yearning to make more but didn’t think that would be possible with finals beginning. I am so excited that that no longer has to be the case.
I am proposing to sit down at least four days each week to make a collage (one per setting). Each piece is 4.5 x 6.5 so I can easily complete one in an hour. This will be the process that will become my habit, umbrellaed under the common theme: In Vogue. I am so super excited to explore this new medium and be given the chance to practice an art I wouldn’t have time for otherwise.
Below are a few pictures of my collaging workspace.
And finally, the one collage I’ve managed to make.
