Putting Pictures Together to Make a Collage

Save

Putting pictures together to make a collage is a fun, great way to preserve memories. It's important to remember a few guidelines to make the collage appealing.

Things You'll Need

  • Photographs
  • Pictures such as artwork, graphics and shapes
  • Scissors
  • Ink pad
  • Tissue
  • Scrapbook page or posterboard
  • Scrapbook paper (optional)
  • Stamps (optional)
  • Glue
  • Embellishments, such as ribbon, buttons, stickers (optional)
  • Find pictures to use in your collage. Determine if you want to cover an entire scrapbook page or posterboard with pictures or if you want to use a few that will leave some of the page's background showing.

  • Cut out the part of the photos and pictures you want to use in the collage. Removing the white border around photos is a good idea when creating a collage to achieve a softer look.

  • Rub the edges of the photos and pictures with ink and slightly smear the ink with a tissue for an even softer look to the collage.

  • Arrange the photos and pictures on the table first before applying them to the scrapbook page or posterboard.

  • Prepare the scrapbook page or posterboard by adding a background such as layers of scrapbook paper, or stamp images onto the page using a theme to go with the collage. Let the page dry.

  • Glue the collage to the scrapbook page or posterboard. Make sure the photos and pictures that overlap are adhered well to the page.

  • Embellishment the collage as desired. Adding ribbon as a frame around the entire collage or a trio of buttons in one corner can help make the photo collage page look more polished.
