I also used some of the cut outs that the punches came from.As I moved along I realized that using only those 2 colors made it a bit dull so I chose the complementary color of orange to add some more vibrancy.I then painted over the shapes with 3 different colors.

(I did it vertically but, it shows up here horizontally)I took a conte crayon (its graphite without the wood around it) and made rubbings from a number of items I had around the room.

It's much easier to do rubbings when the pencil or crayon is empty of paper or wood surrounding it.

I also don't love the really small ones as the punches are hard to handle and glue.

To begin working with these punches to make art, I made a grid with the paper I had available which was yellow pages paper.

I cut out a bunch of them and then squared them off.

To ensure that they would show up better I sprayed my journal page before collaging.These are mostly paper collages even though I do know that assemblages are part of collage I do not cover that here.Of course, I barely touched the amount of collage ideas that were in those books.You can make a grid with any kind of paper as you see in the second project below.Using my punches I began by using the colors blue and silver with the punches to arrange on my gird.I've done lots of shape collages with my elementary art students and below is a collage of some of the ways this kindergarten class used their shapes.Most of them usually end up using to shapes to "make" something as opposed to working with color and design.You can work for months to cover even a fraction but, I ended up trying those that appealed to me and I hope this beginning collage post will help you get started on this fun, enriching, relaxing activity of making art collages.There are very few basic materials you need to begin collage work. For this first collage I cut up identical piles of the 4 basic geometric shapes.I find that many of the collage ideas and activities that are out there​ in museums are similar to this type of collage work which is symbolic and often non understandable without an explanation.In order to create collages we are often asked to paste random papers together to form some kind of artwork.
