A tissue collage of flowers is a simple art project for children. It lets children get creative while using some common art supplies. A tissue collage of flowers can be hung on a wall, placed on a refrigerator or given as a gift to a loved one. Once the child has all the supplies, she's ready to begin work creating a beautiful display of tissue flowers.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines collage as "an artistic composition made of various materials (as paper, cloth, or wood) glued on a surface." While the simplest collages use only paper and glue, more elaborate projects might incorporate a variety of materials. These materials can include bits of fabric, feathers or buttons and lace. Collage techniques have been explored by well-known artists such as Pablo Picasso. The art form is easily accessible to artists of any age and experience level according to Jennifer Atkinson, co-author of "Collage Sourcebook: Exploring the Art and Techniques of Collage."
Transform fallen leaves or a folder full of saved souvenirs into memorable pieces of art for display or sharing by making a collage. Collages -- two-dimensional projects such as cut and torn paper compilations, photo montages or texture collages and constructions -- are fun ways to display a multitude of different items in one place. Often centered around a theme, collages can be made for school projects, to showcase memories with family and friends, or as artistic decorations for scrapbooks or home decor. Making a collage outline is a technique that helps you decide how to execute the project prior to securing it into place.
