How to Make a Collage : Composition & Collage Design


We’re working on the composition now; trying
to pick out different pieces. I’m going for kind of a travel scene, so I picked this map.
This is just ripped out of an old Atlas. This kind of struck my eye. I like this color green,
and this kind of a taupe sand color mixed with the blue. And again, it has a nice straight
edge. I have a lot of edges still left to be used. I’m going to go ahead and cut this
out with a scissors. In your subconscious, what looks good to you? Think about the color,
the composition, the size; obviously. If you’re giving this as a gift, if you know what kind
of person they are, what they like and don’t like, that will determine a lot of your choices
for you. I’m just cutting this real simply, and I save all the scraps just in case I need
it later. This is a map of South Africa, I believe. It’s from an Old Danish school Atlas
I found at an old library. It was like one dollar. So you can find all sorts of weird
stuff if you really hunt. It will make your collage more interesting.
