I did this several years ago, but I hesitated to post, because it is a photo of the collage. The theme is Home. I had fun cutting out pictures from magazines of anything that related to my ideal home.…READ MORE

Oh there is much beauty in the collages posted here, thanks for sharing with us. I've been a lurker, because my collages are a little bit different, but I will share my two latest. I keep a collage gluebook called Puns & Roses (it's an old blank diary with a cover of silver-etched roses on a black background). Hope these are good for a chuckle or two!

Looks like it has been a while since anyone posted in here!! Well, I am going to post a couple of my collage pieces just for fun....

I have made my first bigger collages a few months ago, as a project in VisionQuest. I really loved it working on this size, instead of the smaller (16 by 23cm) journalpages I normaly use for making collages.

The first one is a 'Dreamcollage'
And the second one a 'Face Collage'
I really loved making them big, and I allready started a new one.

I don't make collages often but it's something I've always loved doing because it's so easy to play around with text and image!

I'm a long-time collage artist, but this is my first time doing eggs! LOL! This is really fun. My collages are done on artificial eggs, but I'm sure real egg shells would be fine.

This is a work in progress. I don't like the sprays of yellow and orange but can't decide how to fix them.  Any suggestions?  I really am new to collage. I thought volcano when I put it together. Any body else have ideas?
