Life as a Collage
Have you ever made a collage just for the fun of it? I really like this format because I am not particularly good at creating works of art, but with a collage I can add stunning photographs or detailed illustrations that more talented people have produced. There are a some really cool websites (Polyvore.com or picmonkey.com) where you can create a collage and post your masterpiece on your social media sites or print out a copy and hang it up in your own creative work space.
A collage gives you the opportunity to think of your life in a dynamic way as opposed to a perfectly linear timeline. As the creator of your Life Collage, you get to highlight the things that make your eyes smile.
Glancing at your homemade collage is more inspiring than glaring at your ‘To-do’ list. Perhaps it will give you that kick in the pants you need to get all the necessary stuff done. It even feels a bit artsy-smartsy to mix and match photos, words and illustrations and come up with a life portrait that is uniquely yours.
So, if you have 15 minutes to set aside, piece together your very own Life Collage as a snapshot of the things that matter most to you and include some pictures that make you chuckle or dreams you hope to fulfill. And then share them with us on Pinterest and Facebook. We would love to know what inspires you. Happy Collaging!
