At long last, I've finally created a how-to-create-an-emotionally-charged-collage post that a couple of you asked me to do forever ago (sorry!). For reference, all of my collages are done on Adobe Photoshop CS6 with the help of handy transparent png images (which you can find with a good ol' google search). But for the mean time, I've included a zip file you can download including some of my go-to transparent images over on the right, just to save you a bit of searching. Ready, start, collage!

1 / Open up a new canvas on Adobe Photoshop with ample space (i.e., 5000px x 5000px)
2 / Open up your images and position them
3 / Use the Adobe layers to overlap your images for a collage effect
4 / Instead of using transparent png images, you can also manually erase an image's background (if you're not too lazy)

Easy, right? Try it out and leave me a comment or question!

  4. You have such a good eye for this stuff! Any particular search keywords that turn up the best pngs? Any tips for how you think of what to layer with what else?

    1. Thanks girl! I usually just search for for "ITEM NAME TRANSPARENT PNG" or something like that.
      Also, if you're wondering what to layer your collage with, try to think about what you would put on a real collage, whether it be tape, a stamp, stickers, ripped up paper, or a paperclip! x
