In this lesson, we are investing a little bit – a nice magazine and some liquid adhesive (only because the paper weight and glossiness of the magazine pages might make it hard for a glue stick adhesive to adhere smoothly and in a more permanent way).

I am also finishing off my scraps of envelope from the previous project (nothing is ever wasted!) to break the smooth slightly glossy texture of the magazine pages.

Details in white gel pen, and that’s pretty much it. This project is still a very simple collage project.

Using a small and sharp craft pair of scissors really makes a difference to your cutting. I’ve never been very good and neat when cutting, but investing in a good quality small pair of scissors has really made the difference for me. But if you are good at cutting precisely, a normal pair of scissors might just be more than enough.
