About this project
I recently discovered the iconic collages of graphic designer Dorrit Dekk, whose work is charming and humorous as well as deceptively simple, and it occurred to me that re-creating one of the posters she produced for P&O Cruises in the 1950's would provide an ideal introduction to collage for those who may not have tried this technique before.
You Will Need
Start by drawing the faces in pencil on the watercolour paper, as these will determine the placement of the hats and clothes. Then cut the hats freehand from your bits of patterned paper. If you prefer, you can make templates from brown paper first just to make sure that everything fits nicely.
