Woman Turns Old French Magazines Into Beautiful Art


Out of gift ideas or entertainment for your children? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. How about a fun art project that lets your child channel their inner abstract vision? It’s a great project for younger kids and for older kids, I’ve got something better in store for you.

Take some notes from TikToker and artist Emmy (@emmakennedysucks) who shares in her video how she upcycled old French magazines into a cool work of art.


It is beautiful and reminds me of the art of mixed media collage.

It’s a great concept and can be made with any old newspaper or magazine which is a great way to recycle. If you don’t have old magazines or newspapers handy, you can get them for cheap at flea markets or thrift stores.

As you can see in the video, Emmy first glues the magazine pages to a blank canvas with some type of adhesive, then with painter’s tape she creates a kind of model. She then paints directly on the newspaper and creates different images with drawings and phrases. As she mentioned in the video, her inspiration was old Las Vegas – and it clearly shows.

The best paint to use would be acrylic as it is water based and dries easily. If you are not good at calligraphy, you can use stencils to create letters.

Honestly, when it comes to creating art – any art in fact – your options are endless, especially collage art. You can use old pages from books, magazines, newspapers and photographs, and personalize them by adding color or designs, as well as lettering.

This would make such a great Christmas present!
