Magazine Portrait

It's craft time at Blue Hydrangea...are you giddy with excitement? Me too!!

Saw this amazing piece of art on Chattafabulous and think I might need to try it myself. The portrait is made from tiny pieces of colored paper. I made similar pieces in a collage art class using small squares cut from magazines. And we all know I have more magazines than a crazy-haired, cat loving woman on Hoarders. Wish me luck! I'll be back with an update soon!!

  1. I love that art that Kim featured in her booth! You could totally do it. Can't wait to see your finished product. Is yours going to be that huge? Lots of magazines may be sacrificed for this artwork.
