Just jumping in to join in the Art Journal Journey Challenge, which is collage and recycle.

I always think I don’t collage much at all, but I do use a lot of torn pages, so I think that counts Smile

I’ve also used bits of old images I have in my ‘cut image’ basket, so I’ve definitely recycled… the girl is from an old Claudine Helmuth stamp and was already a bit spattered with ink.

It’s a (deliberately) simple page – just gesso, oxides and a bit of stamping, then some journaling around the edges, as per usual… oh, and a bit of sprinkled gold embossing powder.


The theme is love – love beyond measure.

Thanks for looking

See you soon

I also just jumped into the challenge wondering if my page actually “fit” with the word “collage”. But since I do tear and cut some things, also add others by “sticking” them, and mostly with encouragement from others, here I am! I absolutely love your piece, and the fact that I relate to the theme is a bonus. We all are going through this life often feeling measured at times. Well done, evocative of emotion!

I think your beautiful journal page perfectly fits the Art Journal Journey challenge. I love how bold you are using so much white space. It definitely works and makes the focal image pop. I think it's adorable. We are so glad you shared it with us at Art Journal Journey.

This reminds me so much of Finnabair's journalling style which I have seen at CHA (can't get used to calling it Creativation). Love the white space, love the border you have put around the page, at first I thought you had done some stitching. The splashes of colour are perfect and I love the drip you have taken down which leads the eye to the collage and image.
Thanks for sharing.
Hugs, Neet xx
