Lately, though, there has been some renewed interest in using this theme for teaching kids how to make ATCs using collage as an example.
The idea is that a good collage is made up of multiple layers and should include:
- pleasing colors
- use of lines and texture
- a focal point/ balance
- uneven numbers of elements or layers (3 minimum, 5 is better)
- 2 toothpicks
- 5 punched dots
- 2 visual textures
- original background
Here are some examples of what was submitted for the swap.
