One again, I have decided to do the crusade by Michelle Ward. Text messaging didn’t sound hard, but I struggled with this one. We were to cut out text from magazines and arrange in a composition. I had a couple of magazines and decided to use a fashion magazine. I had been looking at the faces trying to see the shadows and tring to figure out how to draw for my other course which I take online. I pulled quite a few pieces of text from the magazine which appealed to me. I knew it was a shallow magazine but until you see it spread out in front of you, you don’t realize how bad it is. Is this the image I want to put out there? So I thought about the other magazines I had with me, one from the liquor store, which is full of great food receipes and wonderful colour pictures and a Good Housekeeping which was all domesticated. None of these things truly speak of me either, I need a whole raft of magazines to say who I am! I am not cutting up my craft, sewing or knitting mags.
Maybe, I am taking this too seriously, I should just glue it down and get on with it. Maybe I should do more than one, each from a different magazine and see how varied I should make the project. I wallowed for days.
I thought about the words , fashion bible, style bible, food bible and how loosely the word bible is used these days compared to the past, when bible referred to one book only.
So both bibles (it was an old Bible wwith the cover falling offf) were used, it became more of a statement, than I usually make. I used matte medium to glue it all down and thus it is wrinkly.
