Here’s a Quick Guide on how to Collage
Here’s a quick guide on the how to collage. Collages is something anybody can do, it’s super quick and you don’t need specialised equipment to make your collage.
Why collage –
it works your senses, what you feel and see. Collages develop your sense of shape and space. Collages gives you the freedom to explore your feelings and expressions.
What I usually use for my collages : –
Old Magazines, newspapers, junk mail. I cut out all kinds of words, I usually put them in a book between pages. One can put your word and cut outs in a card board box. I cut out all different kinds of shapes, backgrounds, faces anything that draws my attention.
Glue – I use a glue stick – the more expensive ones are the best.
Scissors or X-Acto knives. The X-Acto knives I use for the finer cut outs.
Hardboard – In any color.
Then it’s play time, I just play and put together backgrounds, shapes, faces and words. Whatever the moment brings, what’s in my thoughts, I move things together, rework, reshape until the collage speaks to me. Don’t over think your collage, it’s about the moment.
When you’re done, sit back, enjoy and share if you want to.
