Dreamboard: Full Harvest Moon

I got so busy last month that I wasn't able to do my September Full Corn Moon Dreamboard. BUT I made it a point to make time to create my October Full Harvest Moon Dreamboard, even in the midst of ACL madness. Voila!



For moi, collaging is such a fun, creative and peaceful activity. I get lost in it for hours and consider myself quite the expert. ;-) My tips for a great collage? Anytime you're flipping through a magazine, tear out images or words that speak to you and put them in a folder for later. When it comes time to collage, get them all out and start arranging. Layering images on top of each other is fun, and I always recommend using more images than you think will fit. Also, I try not to leave a lot of blank space and will often go hunting for more size-appropriate images in the middle of collaging. I also love to add extras - glitter glue, stickers, and ribbons galore! The most important thing is to HAVE FUN WITH IT! There are no bad collages, after all. :)

It's so rich and full! Thank you for the collage tips. I'm starting to work on a vision board for the rest of this year and hopefully the rest of my dreamboards will be by hand. I'm not a collag-er!
