Creative Cut and Paste Collages
Sometimes you need to take a break from work with an artistic activity. Enter: creative cut and paste collages.
I spend hours every day looking through images. Most of the time, I’m sorting through and editing my own photographs. But when I have time to spare, I like to admire and learn from the images I see all around me. They’re everywhere–and they’re inspiring.
One day when I hit a lull, I collected some of my favorite images and played around with these creative cut and past collages. My inspiration? A calm, summery color palette and a unique mix of photographs and illustrations. My goal? To uniquely combine images (which don’t normally pair with one another) in order to form fun little vignettes that tell a story. That, and to put off work for a bit.
I find the act of designing for fun quite meditative and generally good for the soul. Plus, you never know what your creations can inspire. Looking for more ways to create in your downtime? Try making some collages, shoot a color story, breathe some life into old photographs, or explore other design projects.
