Default MIX365: Collage 101 (1/24/2020)

Title: Collage 101
Hostess: peeps321 (Polly)
Keyword: MIX365

Challenge: Make a collage card or project


What is collage? It might be called “The Art of Assemblage”…it may also be called your worst nightmare. I’m not sure why but many cardmakers are afraid to make a collage or think they can’t do it. Well I’m going to offer some tips so you won’t feel so intimidated.


-Come up with a theme

-Choose your project-card, tag, gift bag, canvas

-Assemble pieces-papers, embellishments, words, images, rubber stamps, textured items

-Start with your stamped image or focal point and create around it

-Create a background, place items on top…move them around until you get the look you want….maybe take a picture or carefully lift items off your space and then begin gluing or attaching..

-Try a horizontal layout instead of vertical

-Balance your elements….don’t put everything in one corner

-Remember that a collage can be CAS, you don’t need to pile on the embellishments if you don’t want to

-Add texture in unexpected ways-use liquid pearls, sew a border. Add just a touch of lace or ribbon, stencil just a bit on top of a layer using texture paste or paint

-Use torn edges or sew a border..do the unexpected..

-Stamp your image on patterned paper (use light colored paper and one not too busy)

-Don’t take the process too seriously….be playful, have fun….do what comes naturally


Remember to use two or more mediums on your card. See a list of suggested materials here.


Make sure to put MIX365 in the keyword section

What a great list of tips and suggestions, Polly. The only problem is...it doesn't come naturally to me . I might confine myself to an ATC and see what happens.

Hiya, Polly! So nice to see you up close yesterday. Thanks for the challenge.  I really expected this to turn out differently, but my muse had other ideas.  MIX365 Bliss by Lori "Artzadoni"

My card was inspired by an apron on the IC challenge site this weekend but I made a sort of collage card
