|Whizz, Bang, Pop|
This piece comprises of several images that I used to create my own composition.

This was quite a tricky one to do but I had quite a clear idea of what I wanted to create. The biggest challenges were the fire and fireworks as this is not something I'd tried to represent before. I used my main ripping technique to create the main shapes. I then cut out tiny pieces of magazine sprinkled on to represent the sparks. I was really pleased with the effect.

For the launching fireworks I used small cut pieces of magazines again, this time applying them with more accuracy. This is the closest I come to 'painting' with my collages.

I had intended to incorporate text it the fireworks initially but felt that it wasn't needed and would be too much.
This piece has sold and has gone off for framing. I hope to add to my card and print range later this year.
