You can create endless collage projects to impress others. As there are variety of materials or mediums which you can use to create a collage, your art or crafts work is always a unique piece of art. You can use your collage work for making cards, decorate gift boxes, making wall hangings and etc.

Ideas and techniques to create collage work:

  • A collage is your personal canvas, yours to decorate in any way that you please, and hence it becomes unique art piece.
  • You need some basic materials on hand in order to get started, including poster board, scissors, colored pens and pencils, and some glue sticks.
  • Arrange each picture and two dimensional object on the poster board before you glue. Try different arrangements until you get one that looks just right.

       For light weight and flat materials (paper, canvas, etc.) use Liquitex using the fluid or the gel.

  • For heavy weight and 3-D materials (beads, rocks, etc.): Use Liquitex Gel Mediums.
  • Collages are a great way to show the bigger picture, like a baby's first year (or month!), or marathon training, or even your garden's progress over the summer.                         
  • After a fun vacation or a wonderful event, use collage gifts to enjoy your most-loved photos all together.
  • Highlight your family trip or share a collection of your wedding photos with family and friends.
  • You can paint the background with a design or solid color, or even use wall paper or other decorative scrap book papers to create the background that you desire.
  • You can utilize magazines and other materials from which you can cut out pictures, words and phrases.
  • Add money or coinage, or the scent of your favorite perfume or cologne (these scents will fade with time). Add colors and designs penned with colored markers or pencils, or even crayons. Add bits of decorative paper, colored string or other ornamentation. Include special photographs.
  • You might even want to add pressed flowers, a small bag of beach sand or other small items which are important to creating your masterpiece. Use whatever materials you enjoy that will bring your vision to life. Make this multi-sensory experience all about you and your vision.
  • After you have cut out pictures, you can mock up your collage and try laying out things in different formats.
  • Make sure to leave some space between the various items you place on your collage. The space symbolizes the space, clarity, and even the room for growth that you desire in your life
  • Consider writing phrases, verses, or quotations which hold special meaning to you above, below or beside the pictures that you include on your collage. You can search for quotations on the internet by simply typing the word “quotations” in any search engine.
