The collage elements we incorporate into the journal don’t have to be precious, personal fodder or random things we find. Colored paper is an effective way to add lines, shapes, and large areas of color to our pages. Many of us have stacks of handmade, textured, and exotic papers in our studios, or bits of construction or scrapbook papers, or delicate, thin, translucent papers.
Use some of these papers in your journal today. Cut out specific shapes and glue them to pages you’ve already started, or cut and glue down larger shapes onto a blank page as a way to get something started. Cut a variety of lines from the paper, and use them to create structure, movement and flow in your work.
As always, share your responses if you’d like. #jfj15for30
