Student work: Collage by Renate

In this task I have been using an image manipulating program named Gimp to make a collage. I have been inspired by a Norwegian fairytale called “Bukkene Bruse” by Asbjørnsen and Moe, and a song by Ylvis called “What dose the fox say?”.


In this first collage I have been using three pictures that I found on flickr. I used a scissor tool to cut out the goats and the troll and pasted them in to the background.

In this collage I chose to add some new animals to make it look different from the original adventure by Asbjørnsen and Moe. I used the same tools and pasted them into the background.

In this collage which is my final work I have been working with the colors. I chose a dark red color to make it more mystical. I moved the hens so it seems like the fox is watching them. I also took away a man that was standing on the bridge with a clone tool. In the end I added text to the bridge.
