Last month when I was trying to do more creative things everyday I created a set of three collages. I'm not sure where I got the idea to use magazine pages or why I chose these animals. But it was fun and I think they turned out pretty cute.
I began by buying three 8x10 canvases and then painted them green. Then I sketched out the animals and decided on the color scheme for each animal. Over the next couple of days I cut out the colors I needed from various magazines. I was looking for certain colors, but I also wanted interesting textures. I organized them in labeled envelopes (orange, brown, gray, etc) as I cut them out. From there I was ready to actually create the final product by cutting out the shapes and attaching them using Mod Podge glue and a sponge brush. When I was done I put a coat of glue over top to seal it.
