I bought this journal almost a full year ago but still it remained empty. An idea came to me to use it as a collage journal. The paper is stiff enough to hold bits of paper but wouldn't work well with paint or water media. My plan is to use my tiny attacher stapler or adhesive tape. I want to focus on creating compositions with paper. Here is a quick video of the first collage I created in here!
- Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher (small stapler)
- Tombow Mono Dots Adhesive
- Washi Tape
- StāzOn in Jet Black
Here's another one I did the same night. Collage is a fun way to quickly get ideas to paper. They can inspire further paintings or just keep your hands moving. I have so many old magazines or scraps of painty paper. I don't seem to throw things away. That chameleon is from a tea box from Trader Joe's! You never know what might find its way into a collage!
I hope you enjoy!
Happy arting! xx
