Design is one of the most important aspects of collage. Even though the work is an assemblage, it needs all the important aspects of a traditional painting. This includes values (a full range with a light light and a dark dark), color harmony, and design.
Poor mixed media and collage art is often due to poor design. Too many objects, no center of interest and similar flaws. One easy method to help your design is have the major element very large, say 20% to 40% of the total image. And supplement it with smaller elements.
