I created some collage flowers out of scrap paper and photocopied them onto acetate, i like how it turned out, you can see the small details and markings on the paper and give the flower a textured look
These are composition collages i made using secondary images. Before i stuck them down i played around with the placement and colours. I liked the idea of coloured moodboards so i incorporated it into my collages. I included both my subjects, flowers and fruits. I used pastel colours as the background so the colour of the flowers and fruits are stronger and catch the eye.
These are the ones i made using primary and secondary resources. I tried out different styles tried to keep some very minimal and some detailed. I took into consideration the composition from my secondary collages and applied them to this.
A lot of Tracy Emin’s work is personal and tells us a story or a brief moment about that time in her life, Emin uses her life events and past experiences as inspiration for her work.
I like the way she used colour in her pieces the bold vibrant colours against the light pastel background, there are a lot of use of contrast in her blankets and layering of fabric. Her work is filled with colour and different pattern of fabrics; all the colours and patterns Emin uses compliment the piece as a whole and it all comes together.

I decided to project flowers and take pictures because i liked the idea of two different living things merging into one.
After playing around on the camera and changing the white balance and shutter speed settings i finally got the perfect setting and it captured the intensity of the colours. These are a few of my favourite shots i took; Daisy is almost one with the background, she’s merged with the pictures.
I like these pictures because of the colour pallet they compliment each other and do not over empower each other.
I could have improved the photoshoot by planning it out better and picking out poses and include a few more people.
