2. Copy the photo and use it in a collage. I've featured lots of these on my blog, but you can see two that hang in my living room in this post and a whole variety in this post. Many of my collages use heritage photos from my collection. While not actually my photos, I think it's worth mentioning as well. You can see a sample here and here.
3. Use the photo as inspiration for drawing or other type of art journal page. I would not have thought of this before making the clothesline art journal page and getting such nice feedback on it from you all. But now, I think I'm going to do more of this and see where it leads me.
4. Copy a lot of photos to make collage sheets and use the photos on collage image cards. I featured this idea as a tutorial in this post and featured the various cards people made with the tutorial here. As a variation, I have also copied heritage photos and used them on cards, here.
5. Make photo cards. This is actually a little different than the cards we made before. They deserve their own post and that's what's coming tomorrow.
I hope you found this useful. I'd love to hear if there are other ways that you use your photographs in your art.
