I got a ton of magazines from my dentist the last time we were there (nearly six months ago... hey... I can get more soon!) and while I've used some pieces in my mixed media already I've had an issue trying to find something I needed, especially from unfamiliar magazines like Time and Golf Monthly. Spurred on my Shannon Green's video on her own decorated folders for collage I jumped in and spent a day going page by page through the big bag of magazines and pulling out what I liked. Then I decorated these folders and separated out all the things I'd selected from the magazines. I have scenery, men, women, and animals categories to choose from.
I'm happy with how the folders came out but I'm more happy with how easy it is to select what I want.
