Sea Collage Process

I've created a few collages on cardboard for the walls of my room. Here is the process for one of them as GIF with steps below (click it to replay it).

1 - I sweeped up my room first to prevent dirt from getting on the adhesive tape.
2 - Next I chose sealife focused photography books I bought used for a few euros.
3 - Then I searched the photos I find fitting. I looked for underwater shots for this one.
4 - Cutting out the pages I liked I tried out putting them together on the cardboard.
5 - I took care of the overall flow and the edges as far as possible.
6 - To cut off pieces and torn edges I used two woodboards with straight edges and a cutter.
7 - The adhesive tape came into play as soon as I knew how I definitely wanted to begin.
8 - I fixed every piece with a small piece of tape when I've found the right place. No need to fix them completely, since newer ones will overlap the old ones.
9 - As soon as everything is fixed to its place I use the adhesive tape to fix all edges, as you can see on the reflection. This makes it all more flat and prevents it from easily being damaged.

Yep! My friend and artmate Tim Keil who recently lives in Berlin is on a visit here and we went outside for some plein air. I used watercolor (for the first time in years).
