It's time to go through your magazines and make something AWESOME!

Fussy cutting your characters, make a surreal scene for your partner. Take the time to fussy cut your images out nicely - nothing worse than bad cutting (IMHO). Inking the edges helps - a tip I learned a long time ago :)

Make your art postcard sized, please - 4 x 6" at least (5 x 7" would be even better) - most of the collages I'll be hosting are too intricate for anything smaller. If anything bigger than 4 x 6" will cost you more in postage, then 4 x 6" is just fine.

Please send in an envelope to protect your art. These aren't postcards, just postcard sized.

I'm giving lots of time for you to go through your magazines and then a couple of weeks to make some art.

Have fun!

The wonderful image was found on Tumblr. I've found some great images on Pinterest - search for "surreal collage".

Good find, @Wingy

Mmm, I'm going to the library tomorrow - I'll have to ask if they have any mags they want to get rid of.
