A Metro Kidz Collage for I Heart Faces

This week at I Heart Faces, the theme is "collages." Let me just be honest for a minute, and tell you that I have NO idea what makes a collage "good" artistically. So I just put some pictures together that I took at Metro Kidz this past week. And I'm going to go with it because, well, I dont know what else to do really. And plus, could these kids be any cuter? Nope.
See that little one on the top with the cute little smile? He LOOKS cute and innocent, but in the span of less than an hour, he bit me twice and told me he's in a gang. Nice.

For more collages, visit I Heart Faces. And for more Metro Kidz pictures, check back soon (please also recognize that "soon" tends to be a relative term around here).

  24. Beautiful pictures & an awesome collage ~ but somehow so sad when a little boy is 'in a gang' so young. What future? :(

  25. What is Metro Kidz? Sounds like they are lucky to have you! I grew up outside Philadelphia and my Mom was a school teacher in Philly. Those pictures so remind me of some of the kids she taught while I was growing up. Fabulous, fabulous job. Thanks for the comment, you totally made my day!

  32. The bookend effect is fantastic, love how the outter is BW and the inner is color. LOL at your comments on the day, not that it's funny that he said he's in a gang or that it's funny that he bit you, but Im laughing because I always post happy gorgeous pictures of my boys and 90% of the time they are biting me or hitting me with a light saber...

  33. Well I love the collage. Great job on the photos as well!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't know fancy photo terms, but I know that I like the black and white pictures mingled with the color ones. And I like your collage.

    A biting gang? Wow. I'd be careful of that one.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh my, bitten? I love the collage, though!

    ReplyDelete
  36. No. It could NOT be cuter. You are so fantastic! I love this. I don't even know how to make a collage. Seriously. I am a loser for real!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ha! Funny how our cameras can catch such sweet looks and they don't always tell the words!! Great collage!
