Create a Collage from Old Catalogues and Garden Memorablia

Don’t let outdated garden catalogues and magazines go to waste.  Give them a second life by creating a colorful collage. 

This art form is not just for kids.  In Ellen Spector Platt’s book Artful Collage from Found Objects she shows you how to repurpose all kinds of items from the garden, junk drawer and catalogues.  The projects vary in skill level and style.  You are sure to find one for you and even your family to try.

Or use the plant photos to help you plan your garden.  These can be easily moved around a piece of paper to give you a better sense of color and texture combinations.

And, if this isn’t your style, pass them along.  Schools, churches, and daycare centers are often looking for pretty photos to work in craft projects.  Or contact horticulture students and master gardeners that may be interested in using the catalogues and garden magazines as a reference.
