My home – new collage + DIY tip

Stilleben from a window in my apartment. It's been a couple of weeks since I made and added this little A3 collage to my growing collection of collages to decorate the walls in my home. Making collages is a great, easy and very cheap way to bring some color to your home, especially if you don't want your home to look like everyone else's.

If you like me, enjoy taking some time out and use your hands to create, it's a perfect DIY-project. All you need is some magazines and a big paper as a background – then make an overall color scheme of colors you like and match, cut out shapes and colors (avoid text and faces (unless you like a more sketchbook-moodboard'ish look) and create various shapes – use some time to place the cutouts until you like it – finally glue all the pieces together and onto the paper – put it in a frame and VOILA! The good thing about is, that if you get tired of your self-made "art-piece", you can always throw it away (since it didn't really cost you any money) – or maybe pass it on to someone who needs something for their walls as well. Enjoy!
