This is one we do in our school workshops, and we flippin’ love it. It can be really helpful to just rip up a bunch of old magazines – it’s a great way to get your anger out! And then take those ripped up bits and stick them onto some card. Maybe then finish it off by adding a quote or a lyric you love.

If you wanted to be a bit more precise with it, you could try making a collage of things you like or stuff that inspires you.

Collaging is class because you’ve probably got all the materials you need already. Plus, you don’t have to be super artistic to still make something beautiful!
