This is a collage I've made.  Its actually the second or third one, the other two i gave to my friend.  Its really fun and relaxing to make, a great way to used old magazines and news papers and a really good way to express yourself also if you are feeling the need.  If anyone has other collaging ideas or finished projects, id love to hear about- or see them!

I had the best art teacher in high school.  He taught us to keep image files; they were big folders full of interesting images ripped from magazines.  Each student would have their own and the pictures could be used to build collages or as models for drawings.  National Geographic magazine is probably the best for this because it has a wide range of images and really good, thick paper.

Plus, it is easy to make big collages quickly.

I love collage!  Here's one I did of my trip to Barcelona, I wanted something else to remind me of my trip other than a photo album that I would never pull out and look at.  Sorry for the glare...

I really like the Barcelona collage Thumbelina, such a good idea to remember a trip, cos you're right, you never really bother looking at photo albums as much as you should do. Definetly doing that for my next trip!

I love all of your collages.  Smiley  Very cool.  --I also like the idea of making a trip collage...now I just have to go somewhere so I can make one!    Grin

As for collages, I make collage postcards and send them to people.  Here's one.

Cool collages, everybody!  Selenium's looks like it took a lot of work!

Keiko, do you paint something on top of your postcards so the pieces don't come off in the mail?

ooh collage postcard swap!  That could be fun!  I have one question about them though- what do you use as the base?

Yes, Keiko, what do you use to keep the stuff on the postcards when they're mailed?
