In this project students were asked to create a photomontage and then paint it onto A3 paper. These photomontages all had the key theme of body positivity.
Student Reflection & Examples
The theme of the make-up bags was ‘Makeup Bag with a Message’. The message had to be something positive about beauty. I came up with the design by looking through some magazines and making a picture collage of the photos I wanted to use for my bag. To find the right pictures for the idea I had for my bag, I had to use different magazines so that i could make my design look as eye-catching as possible. The magazines ranged from the 1970’s to the 1990’s. From this project, I learnt many skills. I was able to increase my skills on the machine but I was able to get better at free machine embroidery. A new skill I learnt was sewing on a zip and lino printing. It was a very fun project and it was also very good for increasing skills on the sewing machines. By Matilda Munnelly
