I had this idea and started it about 6 1/2 years ago but it got put aside for whatever reason and I never went back to it until now. I think I was afraid of how much work it would be and afraid I got in over my head. My husband is a HUGE Smashing Pumpkins fan and his favorite color is purple. This is a magazine collage of a very iconic Billy Corgan pose done on an 8X10 canvas.

I chose the paper craft category since it is made from magazine clippings, I hope this is the appropriate category.

it reminds me of one time when I was in high school and one of the assignments in my art class was to make a 3x3 picture out of magazine clippings.  I love that picture, and I love this one.  this makes me want to make another one.  Grin

It turned out great! It's hard to get details with paper sometimes, but you've done it perfectly! The background is perfect for setting him off.

I hope your husband loved it, and appreciates all your hard work Smiley
