Collages Are So Fetch...Right? ♥

G'day PinkRyders!!!!!!!!! Guess what? Fetch just happened. I kid you not, friends. I just put Mean Girls to shame. Okay okay, maybe fetch didn't happen, but something realllyyy close to it happened....I MADE A MASTERPIECE COLLAGE, YA'LL! Summer's still here, and you're probably having a Tumblr = my  BFF kind of day or a "Sun. That's a Nice Sun" kind of day. Am I right? Yes. If I'm not right, then maybe you'd like to read this blog anyway!
Am I the only girl in this world that, if I see something, a dress, shoes, any type of clothing, an outfit, nail polish, that I like or catches my eye in a magazine, cuts it out? But strangely, you never try to find that piece of clothing or shoes or accessory in real life. Trust me, I've been doing this for the past 2 years. It's hard work, guys. ;) Anyway, those clothing and accessory clip outs started piling up, and I really had no idea what to do with them....until a genius plan came to mind and I made the best thing ever. Of course, you may disagree...But maybe you'll like it! Anyway, I pulled out a piece of paper, and started arranging those clip outs, then got to work....

What you'll need to make a masterpiece:



You'll also need a large piece of paper, but a normal printer paper might work, depending on the size. So, you'll need scissors because really, when something caught your eye, did you meticulously cut it out of the magazine? Yes? Congratulations. ;) If not, and you're like me, then you'll need scissors! And glue, I mean, you could use tape, but what's the fun in not getting glue all over your clothes, hair, and workplace? I mean, putting glue on a piece of paper, then getting called, getting surprised, and dropping the gooey piece of paper everywhere is essential in the creativity flow, is it not? :)



You'll need A LOT of different cut-outs! Cut outs of people, shoes, (my personal favorite! But, you already know that!), makeup/stuff like that, clothing, and basically ANYTHING that catches your eye! I also cut out quotes, large words, exotic looking animals, large pieces of colors...So, basically, anything! I suggest sorting these cut outs into piles because if you don't, that collage will be thrown across the room. ;)


It may take a while to see where exactly you want to paste the pictures on the paper, but I say just dump some glue on a cut out and put it on the paper. It's simple, and a great way to start, is it not? :) Don't make specific sections of the paper for specific pictures or groups of pictures, that's just non-collage-y. Instead of matching, mix and match, and you never know what will be the outcome!
 It may come out looking like your little sister made it, or you may end up looking for a job as an artist, but who knows!


Ya'll, that really all I can say. Keep pasting, don't try to sort things out in specific piles, and try to fill up all the empty spaces of paper!


I have to admit, this collage took me hours to make, and I didn't even fuss about where to paste the pictures! (Ok, so maybe I did overthink about where those studded stilettos fit in, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!) Anyway, I was really happy about the outcome because it was so me. :)


ANYWAY....I hope you enjoyed this post! It took me almost a week to write this, and I'm not sure why...:) What did you think of my collage? It's pretty rad, right? ;) I hope this project gave you some quality outcomes. I cut out these pictures from all different kinds of magazines-Seventeen, then National Geographic. Teen Vogue, then some weird museum brochure. Point is, if something catches your eye, whatever it is, well, there is no point, this was just some blog about a girl with fashion. Haha. :) Well, I really do hope you enjoyed this blog, and despite the hours it took me to make a simple collage, those hours were fun, and I couldn't help but blog about it. :)

Until I actually find a piece of clothing I found in a magazine in real life,
