Fashion Collages Coming Soon

I'm out of town right now so I can't post photos, but I'm putting together a bunch of fashion collages with different themes like pattern mixing, frontier looks, textures, and so on. On the train ride up here I cut out a bunch of fashion photos from magazines and then once I got here I bought a tablet of 8x12" drawing paper to glue them all down. Then I'll do some DIY project to go with each collage board, so this is a long term project and I'll have exciting things to share in this blog if you want to follow along. I know I'm not the first person to have ever done this, but it will be fun all the same. And hopefully someone new to the game will find the information beneficial.

Once I got here I glued everything to the appropriate page.  Most of them were big photos so now I need to find smaller photos to fill in all the gaps. My friend gave me a big stack of fashion magazines to help me out but I only brought one with me on the train, because weight is a factor. I always buy stuff when I'm up here, so I always have more weight on the way home to carry.

I also realized that the size of the paper that was best for the collages won't fit on my scanner, so I'll have to take the photos with my digital camera and hope for the best.
