For the first of today’s collage journal share, I bring you this Amazonian woman: I had the image of the kicking woman in my stash and thought it would add a fun touch to a collage.  I pictured her kicking her leg over a building.  I ended up using the image of the moped riders […]

Today’s collage journal share includes my most favorited collage on my Instagram account thus far. I guess people really like the bright colors of this collage and the funkiness of it.  It started out with the image of the woman in a bright yellow coat with red chili peppers in her hair.  She was so […]

For today’s collage journal share, I have three very different collages to present you. First up, another photomontage inspired by Kirsten Dunst’s Marie Antoinette photo shoot in Vogue magazine.  This was the cover image, which had a lot of surrounding text.  I got rid of some of the text by trimming away most of the […]
