I love looking at different patterns, shapes and colors in magazines. So tonight, I decided to cut out the ones that really spoke to me and glue them in my art journal, here is the result:


Isn’t it incredible?!  😊

I started by creating a grid in my 9×9 inch art journal:


This gave me the size to cut from my magazines:


I then glued them into the squares with a glue stick. Β It helped to have more images than I needed. Β I added some smaller images to cover the lines. Β I really enjoyed doing this exercise!

I hope you will join me tomorrow to see how I use this collage to give me ideas for my art!

Some of the magazines I used were cooking, craft, decorating, clothing and gardening.

Happy Creating! Β πŸ˜ƒ
