100 Days of Collage

100.days.of.collage.stephanie.levy

Hi there,

I just started a new creative project challenging myself to make 100 collages in the next 100 days, and I'd love for you to join me!

There are no rules - or you can make your own - and I'm limiting the time spent on my collages each day to 30 minutes or less.

This project is completely free and it costs nothing to take part!

All you need is a pair of scissors, a glue stick, and a stack of newspapers, magazines, old books, wrapping paper, or any other papers or other lightweight materials  you have around the house.

The wonderful thing about collage is that you don't need any "art experience" at all!

You don't need to be able to draw or paint or sculpt or sew! For collage, you simply cut up papers, patterns, and images, and glue it all down in a way that pleases you.

Sound like fun?

Have a peek at the collages I've made so far this week...

As you can see, I'm enjoying incorporating favorite daily quotes into my collages - but you can choose to approach this however you'd like.

Each day, I'll be posting my collages on Instagram here using the hashtag #100daysofcollage.

When you click on the hashtag #100daysofcollage over on Instagram, you'll see collages from around the world too!

As the days grow shorter, it's a great time to get started on a creative project for the remaining months of 2014, don't you agree? 

To get lots of detailed collage techniques and prompts, step by step tutorials, plus tips from international collage artists, you can also check out my 30 Days of Collage online course - but the #100daysofcollage project is completely free and open to everyone!

I wish you lots of happy collage creating this autumn + I can't wait to see what you'll make!

Don't forget to share on Instagram or Facebook with the tag #100daysofcollage so that we can all find your lovely new collages and see your work in progress :)

If you start now, you'll be finished by the end of this year... Just grab a sketchbook, some paper scraps you have at home, and let's go!

Hugs from Berlin,

xoxo
