Recently I became obsessed with collage art using vintage pictures, illustrations, and ephemera.  I don't really know what it is called, so I'm just calling it collage art for now.  One of the artists, Aprile Elcich, creates art for Anthropologie--swoon.  Here are some examples.

I thought that it would be fun to try on a layout of my own.  Here's how it turned out (of course I used more pictures and words than any of the examples--my lot in life). It was actually pretty easy once I got some basics. Tune in tomorrow for a tips on creating collage scrapbook layouts.

Gorgeous layout! I am afraid my layouts will always look amateurish, especially compared to yours. I can't seem to break my habits as far as picture cropping into rounded rectangles goes. And to be honest, I don't know how people only scrap one picture. That's pretty much not possible for me.
