When I was in Kindergarten my teacher told my Mom I was really good with scissors. Not the best compliment in the world but maybe she was on to something.
Honestly I've never used scissors to make any collages. I started out doing digital stuff, then I decided to go more organic & I used an exacto. Now I just can't be bothered to even use a tool so I just tear the shit out. Most recently I've been collaging over playing cards. I'm turning them into a series of zines and so far many have been used for recent album covers.
