Collage-making is big fun. I write here about why it is so freeing, and why you can learn so much from it.
In this blog post, I will show you a video of the process of making a postcard-size collage. I used an old business post card of mine and, since the card gets almost completely covered, it doesn’t matter that there is already some text on it. You can use anything as a substrate as long as it is sturdy.
I used scraps of collage paper that I made myself. I’ll show a photo of this piece of paper below the video and a photo of the finished collage, too.
The materials I used are:
- Golden Fluid Acrylics: Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold. This is my absolute favorite art supply ever. I write more about it here.
- Amsterdam Acrylic: Titanium White. This is student grade paint that I use all the time.
- Caran d’Ache Neocolor II Crayons: Turquoise . These crayons are my second favorite art supply, and Turquoise is a color I use all the time.

In this video I use simple paper glue, since my Matte Medium was finished and I had not bought another container yet. The beautiful thing about Matte Medium is that it dries transparently, so you can use it as a top layer that protects the collage and keeps it together beautifully.
Have fun watching! And please let me know in the comments about your experience with collage making.
