I thought up the idea for this collage while looking through a magazine filled with pictures of impossibly skinny women.
I've never really done one of these before. It looks jagged because the collage is supposed to have a magazine cut out feel to it.

Time: about 2 hours
Song Inspiration: Tegan & Sara - You Wouldn't Like Me
This is my very first collage so comments and CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, especially, would be much appreciated.

I really really really like this. Love the message, I love the cut out feel to it, I love it!
You are now a goddess.

wow! I love this!
The idea for it is awesome too; it's very inspirational. I know that when I look at a magazine for your average teenage girl (like me) my self esteem, not to meantion my IQ, decrease so much that both end up negative.
Yes I love this. I like how the eyes are covered in a symbolic way and I like the textures too! Good job!
