I've always wanted to try collage, it looked so fun and shiny. So here is my take on this cheapo collage challenge. Everything used was found in or around the house. All the pictures were found in my fathers very boring computer magazines ( I can't dare cut up my Vogues). The branches,  that are now painted gold and black and used as a border, were cut from our Aspens long ago. The piece of wood that holds everything together was scavenged from some construction dumpster. So voila, this is my creation. A girl looking over the fence at the chaos that is the universe. I like the tan lines, muy sexy.

that's cool. Something like this can be easily made on photoshop, but the fact that you did it by hand makes it even better. I love the inner twing border - it almost looks like bamboo.

I think for your first effort this is lovely.  I think it's hard to pull of a collage "scene" without it looking too messy, you know?  But this takes the cake.  The aspen branches are a wonderful touch to give it a swirling motion.  Kinda chaotic.  Thanks for posting!
