Inspiration

So here's the first of my lists on the art I love...
shismo mama, collage a day series, especially this one:


I like it because of it's simplicity and bold colours (especially the combination of pink and green).
The whole set of collages can be seen on flickr
There are many other colour combinations I like from this set:
turquoise and green
hot pink and blue

Now on to Claudine Hellmuth. Her collages are wonderful but these are the elements I particularly like:
hand drawn black lines
combination of fabric and paper
vintage, black and white photographs
whimsical elements like hats, bags and shoes

I love the use of fabric in this piece by Emily (the black apple). So much so in fact, that I bought a print of it.
