A collage is simply a form of art that can be made by using bits of paper, fabrics, materials or photos on to a backing. This is a fun thing to do that does not need that much skill for a person to take up.

For the backing of the collage, you can use a bit of thermocol if you do not want to spend too much on the collage. If you want a more permanent collage and are willing to spend a bit more, then you could go for a soft board or even some form of softer wood.
