A Photo Collage tells a story in pictures. You can describe a particular object with a series of photographs and never even say or write a word.
Collages are best when they're full of pictures and images of the same type, but not necessarily the exact same thing. For example, you can do a photo collage of cats and include pictures of Siamese cats, cat food, tigers, and other related images.
What You'll Need:
- Color film
- Craft glue
- Long mat-board (available at art supply stores)
Step 1: Take a series of different photos of the same thing such as several types of dogs or close-ups of a variety of flowers.
Step 2: Glue the photographs in a row on a colorful piece of mat-board. Choose a color that picks up something in your pictures.
You can also take a series of pictures of parts of an object. For instance, take photos of car tires, the trunk of the car, and the car grille. Put them together on the mat-board.
Make several Photo Collages and have a showing of your photography. You can choose to create collages that all follow one theme, or create a 'gallery' of dozens of totally different subjects.
The next photo craft will show you how to make a special frame for a special photo -- this can go in your gallery too.
