I'm loving collating with things I scan in from my sewing box. Doily's are a favourite at the moment. Look at all the things you have around the house and make a picture from an assortment. Doesn't have to be a grown up thing either, it's great fun for kids. Enjoy, Jennie

I've just started experimenting with some collage in my art but I went a step further when I was making a friends new baby gift.
Mostly I've been doing the main drawing and then collaging some extra bits. This time I started with pictures, paper, printed type and then added drawing into to the arrangement. Check out the results and how to's.....
|The finished piece, I'm very happy and itching to do more.|
|I used bits of cuttings from 'the photo album' by frankie magazine. It;s got some great pics and it's printed on heavy matt paper. I'd got coloured pens, scissors, double sided foam tape and a glue stick.|
|A few more snippets from the book and arranged them until I was happy with it.|
|A close up of the finished piece. I used a combination of glue stick and sticky foam so you get a layering 3D effect. I also drew the dotted line from Anna to Grace and a star on the heart.|
|Another close up, the owl & chipmunk and deer all came from one picture of ornaments on someones front window....complete with net curtain.|
|A collage of the collage. I'm loving how you can instagram together you pics.|
Anyway....happy creating. I hope you start collaging too. Send me a picture if you do.
