Enamered with Collage

Lately, I am completely enamered by collage. I have been a scrapbooker for what seems like for-ev-er. But, I just can't seem to get the hang of collage. I mean, I know the basics...gather various "found" objects, cut out pictures, and glue to something, ie., paper, canvas, an altered book, or any other surface for that matter. I get all hung up on what I can and can't use (copyright issues), what's a good composition, what story do I want to tell. UGH!

So, I'm on a journey. I want to be a mixed media artist that is really good at collage. To reach this goal, I've started with a little inspiration. Take a look at this slideshow.

Have you ever tried collage? Got any tips?

  1. Hi, Jenn! Great slideshow, some really inspiring ones in there. I have never been good at collage, but always admire them. Maybe we both need to stop editing ourselves and just throw a buncha crap on a page and call it beautiful?
