Picture Addition Worksheets offers the easy way to perform your first picture collage. This first step in a collage is, after all, how you get started and this video tutorial is how you continue the collage throughout.
If you are going to use Picture Addition Worksheets as a guide, it will also give you the opportunity to begin writing your own story and ending your pictures with the appropriate ending or the conclusion of your story. While this may sound like an impossibility, it is not at all necessary for a professional-looking end result.
The time to start using these worksheets for your beginning stages is when you are first taking pictures. If you take photographs at this stage, there is no reason why you cannot use them as a reference point for your collage. You will still need to learn how to collage but for the beginning stages of this tutorial, let’s take a look at how these worksheets can be used.
First, select a picture or two to use as a starting point for your collage. These are normally pieces of art, photographs that you might have had some type of contact with or perhaps a photo of yourself and family or friends. Then make sure that you’re looking at each photo from different angles to ensure that the pictures are viewed from a variety of perspectives. Do this for each piece of art you wish to use for your collage and continue until all of the photos you have selected are in their appropriate positions.
Use the Picture Addition Worksheets provided to help you arrange and position the photos. For example, you may need to include a small border around the pictures so that you can get a better view of them when you are arranging them later on.
Once you have selected the positions you want for each photograph, place each one in a corner of the frame. Use the corner pieces of material you purchased at the store to hold them in place and then you will have the perfect frames for each of your photos.
While you are arranging and positioning the photos for your collage, make sure you are also checking your positioning for continuity. For example, if your photograph is in the top left corner, make sure you are also in the top right corner. By including a piece of white paper at each corner, you will be able to make sure that you are in your starting positions for all of your photographs as well as keep them in their proper position while you are adding other elements to your collage.
If you decide that the photos you have chosen are not going to work for your collage, do not despair! Look at the position of the photo and write the photo number on the right side of the paper so that you can remove them. When you remove a photograph from your collage, move it to another position and continue to do this until you are satisfied with the number of photographs you need for your collage.
