Collaging.

  I am obsessed with collages. So the other day when I was on Tumblr, I saw an amazing collage. That's why I decided to make a collage on my ugly notebook inspired by those collages on Tumblr. I've always been a big fan of "cutting-and-sticking", I did many collages before, but by far, this one below is my favorite! I want to share some of my tips on collaging and I hope you all enjoy! By the way, Happy Valentine's Day. 
       

My collage essentials:
    - Stickers (Vintage stickers are preferred)
-Magazines or photos from Tumblr/WeHeartIt
-A pair of scissors
- Glues (I used Elmer's and Pritt glue)
-Glitter glues
-Sequins/Fake gem stones

You need to think of the background of your collage first:
Do you want it plain? Draw patterns on it? What color? Quotes on it? Paint on it?

Theme/"Centre of Attention":
Pick a specific theme, Feminism, Boy Bands, TV Show, 80s, Cartoons, Flowers, etc...
Choose 1-3 photos that you want to draw attention to. I wanted to draw attention to Sky Ferreria and Kate Nash, so I picked photos where they look directly to the camera and have similar facial expressions. Meanwhile, the other characters don't have eye contact with us. 

Stickers and Glitters:
Just stick all over the place. Don't forget to add some sequins and gem stones to glam it up. Last but not least, glitter glues. Just write some random words on it. Done! 

Love, 
Jane

  2. I'd love to find some time to make some collages... I used to be really into scrapbooking a few years ago, but now I have to settle for Polyvore instead!

Ik ben echt blij als ik mensen vind van België, ik weet niet of je in de buurt van Gent woont maar begin maart is het retrobeurs, moet je opzoeken en dat is THE PLACE voor overdosis vintage en leuke stuff dingen xoxoxo
