MONTAGE & SCRAP PHOTOS & MORE

Duplicate prints and downright bad shots
 can be put to good use...I've said it before.
SURE, PHOTOSHOP CAN ACCOMPLISH ALL THESE
TECHNIQUES, BUT THE OLD-FASHIONED
WAY IS AWFULLY FUN.
In this first example, a large print served as the support (or background, if you will). Then I found other, smaller prints to cut up and arrange to make the work more interesting. Do try this, but only glue the pieces down when you're happy with the composition. I like the complementary colors together.

Good method for hiding the worst parts!
This next idea is the "more" mentioned in this post's title. My so-called example below is a straight photograph, with no manipulation or mixed-media. But it gave me an idea! Make your own "trellis" with thin chart tape, fine-line tape, or other colored tape! So easy, and yet you can be as creative as you wish.

Our third photograph has been manipulated a great deal!
It's a weaving, of course, with yarns, wallpaper strips, and more.
I worked around the figure...she's not simply pasted on top!

 
I've featured other fun photo projects on this blog. Check out this photocopy fun page and this painted collage post. Also another painted collage page here. AND 3 photomontages, fun and cool.
Happy New Year, everyone!
