Weekly Art Challenge: Make a Collage out of a Magazine Ad! (Jan. 7, 2009)

For this week, go through any magazine that you have laying around your house and tear out an ad that inspires you. Then start cutting it up and playing with it. For my collage here, I started with an ad for coffee (that's the main image in the center). Then I cut up the text in the ad and reworked it so that it reads: Express Yourself. Do it. The Most Majestic Experience. Cool, huh? Then I added bits of paper scraps, ephemera and watercolor crayon scribbles. I loved doing this and will surely do it again! Next time, I'll scan the ad first before I make the collage so you can get a better visual of what I mean.
