More than likely, when you were five, you were taught one collage technique and thought "Well that's that." But there are lots of different ways to make a collage. For example, four or five images can make a collage: it's more about the shared subject matter than sticking all the pictures you can find, together.

If you're trying to display your family photos in a creative way, or simply make a decorative focal point, a collage is an excellent way to go. For larger walls, we highly recommend you use a few, carefully selected photos, to keep the images clear and the piece's impact factor high. Let's get started on the basics.

 

Canvas Print Collage: Vary Your Images

 

Your first and most obvious step is selecting your images. The key here is to get specific shots.

 

1) Details or macro images – Focus on the little things that make your pictures great.

 2) Close-ups of faces or landscape aspects that you would like highlighted.

 3) An establishing image: shot in wide focus and capturing your entire, desired scene.

 4) Abstracts – Look for colours and textures you like for close ups.

Once you have lots of various types of images, you have the basic minimum to get started. But now you need to decide how you want to put it together. 

 

Background Choices 

 

There are lots of ways you can arrange your collage

 

1) A cloud effect, with photos that seem random, but gravitate to a centre point.

2) Along a line, you can decide whether you'd prefer a curved effect or maybe something more maze-like. Once you have a faint guiding line, you can arrange your photos along it.

3) In a geometric pattern – prepare to channel your inner five-year-old.

Whatever your choice, the key is giving your collage some structure with your background. You can keep it simple, with something like a square, filled with a complementing colour. Or maybe even a few lines of color. If you're feeling particularly creative, you can make (or buy) an entire abstract piece and mount your collage on that. 

 

Just remember, that like all art, a collage is a creative endeavor. One of the best things of canvas art is its flexibility: you can try an arrangement and love it today, but in the morning, throw it out and start again. Just remember these golden words:
