Collage is different than any other artform. I save scraps of discarded paper or fine art papers and combine them by cutting or tearing into shapes and overlapping or fitting them onto a rectangle or a square. When I find a pleasing composition, I glue the pieces down. The contrast, direction, texture, and color of the papers are important. No subject matter is needed, but vertical and horizontal movements suggest landscape.
