As you may have guessed, we here at Collagist love all things collages. Defined as an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole, what’s not to like about this form of art? And with a name like Collagist, it would only make sense that we’re a valuable resource for those looking for info on collages. So with that as a backdrop, here are some of our favorite online collage related sites:
