Draw a horizon line that has a bump.
Draw a path. The path should be narrow by the horizon line and wide by the bottom of your paper. The path should go diagonally down your paper.
Draw two vertical lines for a tree trunk.
Erase the overlap.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 two more times.
Begin finding pictures of a similar color for your ground. I chose grey. Browns, greens and yellows would work too. Do not cut the paper, rip it. We want the edges to have interesting texture.
Overlap the torn pictures and glue them to your ground.
Don't worry about covering parts of your trees or paths.
Choose a color darker than your ground to fill your path. I chose black.
Choose a color for your trees. I chose dark grey. Make sure it's a different color than the colors you've used already.
Fill all trees.
Fill the negative space with text (paper with words). Glue the paper so the words are going vertically up your paper. This will created the illusion of more smaller trees far away.
Fill your background.
Use oil pastel to add branches to your trees.
Use scissors to cut off the paper hanging off the edges. Congratulations! You created a collage!
