Well it’s been a while since my last post. But between the new job and a broken iPad it was a bit difficult to post. Anyway here I am with another post That I hope all of you will enjoy. I’ve picked up yet another hobby. The fun art of old school style collage. You can make anything look fun and vintage with some old wallpaper and magazine clippings. Personally I really enjoy using the old post and better homes magazines. I love the classic movie actors and these magazines are filled with great clippings. The fashion is also very beautiful and just classic for using in collage pieces. The fun thing with collage is how inexpensive and easy it is to get into. Here is a picture of my first collage project. It’s not perfect but it does really help this old two dollar suitcase into something nicer.
I tried to keep this first project simple. I only used a the clippings, collage glue, and an acrylic sealant to help protect the finished project. Let me know what you think and hopefully I will be posting new project pictures as soon as they get finished. Here are a couple helpful articles I found about collage work. Some of the projects shown take a bit more supplies but are fun and creative all the same.
