A Word From the Author:
"Ever had one of those days where you overthink everything? The right side of your brain is telling you to create, and the left side of your brain is saying, "Now let’s sit down and ponder this idea. " I have a solution for you: just go with creativity. Find your inner child and let loose with your art. Pull out those unfinished drawings, paintings and sketches; grab that box of loose photos and paper scraps; leaf through old books, magazines and textiles.
That’s right, go back to the playground! The place you ran around, free of your inhibitions. Go back to the stories you would make up and the drawings that went with them. Go back to your wide-open imagination and just create." — Kimberly Santiago

I loved show-and-tell day at school; I felt it was the time I got to know myself as well as others. I take this same view of the materials people select for their Collage Resources—the papers, maps, stamps, pamphlets, brochures and photos. What is it that appeals to you? Is there a common thread, or is it just a random selection?
Collage sources are abundant and found everywhere. Unsure of what to look for? Get started by looking over the list below and then select what appeals to you—just like show-and-tell.
