Hello! Thank you for checking out today’s activity… We’re exploring creative collage and I hope you enjoy crafting your own versions!
We’ve included links to all the materials needed in case you don’t have them at home and need to purchase some. Please note – by making a purchase through the links below, Making Space will receive a small commission, so you will be helping raise funds us as well!
To start with you need to create an array of different patterned papers… I used art markers but you can use paints, crayons, pencils…. it’s totally up to you.
Try and experiment with different colours, marks, sizes etc.
Once you have a good selection you can then start the collage part of the activity.
You may want to come up with a design first, then you can cut out shapes and recreate your design in collage. Mix up your different prints and colour-ways to creative dynamic and exciting collages.
You could just create artwork with them, or you may want to make personalised cards or pictures for people.
Once you are happy with your collage layout you can then start sticking everything down. I start with the pieces on the bottom first then work my way up to the top layers but do wheat ever works for you.
Try and be really creative and don’t forget you can use Pinterest and google images for inspiration if you’re not sure where to start… Have fun, make something wonderful and don’t forget to share your creations with us!
