Paper Collage: Wear A Tiara

One of my newer paper collages

collage wear a tiara daily by cat whipple 219x300 Paper Collage: Wear A TiaraI call this one “Wear A Tiara Everyday”. I wish I could wear a tiara everyday, I love tiaras. But then, I would look like a looney lady and people would cross the street to avoid me.

I created this paper collage using an old public domain image of a beautiful woman. I created the background using markers, pens and magazine cutout pieces. I created the eyes by drawing them first on paper and coloring them before pasting them on.

The juggling balls are cutout from some of my doodles that I scanned in and printed out (that way I can use them over and over in different projects).

I messed up on the lettering, something that I am trying to get better at. I put the words too close together. Oh well, it was a fun project and I like the way it looks despite that flaw.

Digital Collage: My Girls In Hats Series

Girl In Hat series by Cat Whipple 235x300 Girls In Hats SeriesThis is one of my latest Photoshop collage series, I call it Girls In Hats. There are eight of them total.

I created these using lots of different layers, some are images and patterns in the public domain that have been layered, filtered, distorted, etc. to create a new effect and look.

I drew the face on paper, colored it in with Pan Pastels and then scanned it in. Then I fixed the face so it was the way I wanted it. (I can never draw a symmetrical face, they are always lopsided.) Then I drew the hair, the hat, and clothes. After I was done with those I created the background.

I had lots of fun working on this series. I love drawing faces and creating clothes, its like dressing up barbie dolls when I was little.
