Ok shes/hes and theys… The history of my photo collaging goes waaaay back with me. For almost 12 years, I had a photo collage of magazine pictures taped onto my door on my childhood bedroom (see example below). I don’t recommend letting an 11 year old do what I did, because when you peel everything off 12 years later, you peel off the layers of the door as well. Oops.
If you want to proceed with good old fashioned paper and cutting and pasting, I support you. Don’t do it on anything permanent unless you’re feeling crazy, but your Auntie Sam supports you no matter what. Just don’t tell your parents I enabelled you photo collaging onto things that they will have to deal with in the future.
If you’re looking for a cleaner way to photo collage – fear not! I have a solution for you (located below in “Variation #2)…
Here are the materials you will need for this week, whatever path you may choose.
- A medium to paste everything that is not a door. Maybe a poster board or a sketchbook?
- Ability to access the App Store
- Download the app PicsArt or Pic Collage.
- Use the “Freestyle” function
