Looking at pics all over the internet inspired me to do some collages in my journal. Of course me being me, just sticking things down wasn't enough for me, I had to embellish and decorate and make it look good. I just cannot leave stuff alone until I feel it looks good. Good enough for me anyway.
Here's what I did:
I don't know if you can tell, but I first needed to warm up a little. The first two are simpler and less full of stuff, but soon my need to fill everything to the brim took over and things really got going.
I especially like the last two with the pastel coloured background. I like how it contrasts with the more colourful imagery.
It was so much fun to do these! I missed doing 'real' collage and it was fun to get back to it and combine it with penwork, coloured pencils and stencils. I will definitely do more of these!
Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy weekend!
