Making Great Collages Making Great Collages Presentation Transcript

  • Creating a Great Collage 10 tips to make your sketchbook cover fantastic!
  • 1. Start with your largest pieces first! ● Glue large shapes down to create a background, then layer medium shapes, and finally your smallest shapes. ● Overlap shapes to create UNITY.
  • 2. Cut carefully! ● Neat cutting skills will allow your images to blend together seamlessly.
  • 3. Glue completely! ● Make sure all edges are firmly glued down so they lay flat and have no pieces flipping up. ● If using mod-podge, paint a layer under and over each piece.
  • 4. Add text! ● Use old book pages, or photocopies of pages, for backgrounds, or use text to spell concepts and ideas that capture your message. ● Find interesting looking letters, mix up fonts and sizes.
  • 5. Textures and patterns ● Make sure to include a variety of each to add depth and interest to your collage. ● Cut shapes from interesting textures to create objects like leaves, feathers, etc.
  • 6. Scale ● Use a variety of large, medium, and small shapes.
  • 7. Play with assemblage ● Take elements from one object and combine them with another to make interesting remixed creatures!
  • 8. Mixed-media ● When the glue dries, use crayons, colored pencils, sharpies and paint to add drawn elements to your collage.
  • 9. Make it personal! ● Bring in images, wrappers, receipts, maps, handwritten notes, photocopies of family photos, and sketches to add personal touches to your collage.
  • 10. Use color for emphasis. ● Warm colors like red, orange, and yellow attract attention first. ● Create a triangle of warm toned collage pieces to create a composition that moves your viewer’s eye in a path.
