This was a picture on a frame I bought from a charity shop. I disgarded this for a while and then realised it might make a good rocket or a giraffe?
Anyway, so I abandoned the giraffe idea which was probably a mistake seeing how the rocket turned out! It looks like a 6 year old might have made it but I present it here anyway to show you that I do have my off days!

I cheated a little on this one as it's a double page spread but the machine I was after was on both pages. I knew I could find a machine that would turn into a robot quite easily and it was just a matter of finding the right one.
Here's the end result- a nice friendly green robot who is having fun making sparks!

This is the original page from a vintage magazine (Journal, I think). This collage was a lot of work but I was very happy that I managed to use just about every scrap of paper from this page. Even with one page of source material I still managed to make a terrible mess on the table - so this collage is a little bit autobiographical.
The finished collage.
I really enjoy these challenging themes very much. They force me to move beyond my collage comfort zone. I hope I have time to do another one this week. I can't speak to the quality of the product but I had tons of fun putting it together.
!There you are... Caught in the middle of a foreign roadblock, while in possession of strange substances.
OK, so these are posted backwards-- the original is on the bottom. This is one of the toughest challenges we've had in a long time! Forget trying a random page; that wasn't working at all so I searched and searched for something with 2 disparate images on it, instead of just rearranging one picture. Not much luck there either. Turning an A into a U with no extra red to work with was a bit tricky also. Having said all that, I do believe I'll try to come up with another this week. You guys are doing a fabulous job with a hard theme!!
Here's my starting page , from a book about the cinema. This still from the classic Tod Browning film "Freaks" caught my eye. Well it would- would't it?!
So I tried to make it even freakier by adding body parts from the other film folks on the page. Hope nobody is offended by this! I apologise for my lapse in good taste!
