I have been doing these mini collages in my art journal that start by glueing a piece of paper randomly on a page and then going back and adding to it until it feels like it is done.
It reminds me of solving a puzzle.
Here is one I just started:
I hope to show you how I complete it next week!
The one below, I started with the brown piece of kraft paper that I previously printed on the Gelli plate:
I added the tree and then got the idea to add the image of a child and a growth chart.
I started with the gray image from a magazine underneath the “water circus” image for this one:
From there, I added the buoy paper, etc. I finished it with the rubber stamped letters to balance out the fish.
It IS a splash to create collage this way!! I hope you give me a try and tell me what you think!
