Collage Art Journal: Pages 18-19

I have two collage journal pages to share with you today.  The first one I’m calling Stroll. I was taken by the image of the model – actress Alicia Vikander – walking on some Louis Vuitton luggage and decided to place her on water.  I had the image you see in the background of a […]

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 […]

Boo the Pomeranian Handmade Birthday Card

I started out crafting by making cards for my friends and family, and over the years, as I have taken on all kinds of crafty projects, my card making has become less and less.  But every now and then, my card making urge comes back, especially if I get a sudden inspiration, as was the case […]

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 […]

With the two collage journal pages I’m sharing with you today, I feel I hit another milestone in my collage art journey, especially with this first one: The starting point for this collage was the photo of the plumeria plant in the front.  It was such a large, bold image, that I thought I would put […]

I loved this candid picture of Minnie Driver and Charlize Theron dancing together at a post-Oscar party, but there was text all around the image, so I decided to come up with a creative way to hide the text.  My intention was to frame the […]

Magazine Photo Collage Art – Getting Started

You wouldn’t know it by the lack of posts, but I have been on a creative tear the last few weeks, since the end of April.  What, you may ask, has gotten my attention, that I’ve neglected to eat or sleep?  Magazine photo collage art!  I had initially wanted to start an art journal after […]

Making Crepe Paper Surprise Balls with Theresa Weller

A few weeks ago, I took a class with Theresa Weller at Handcraft Studio School to make surprise balls – “the toy that’s a joy to destroy.”  A surprise ball consists of a series of small trinkets and toys wrapped decoratively in layers of crepe paper.  In order to get to the gifts, you have […]

Costume Jewelry Wreath

I had been collecting costume jewelry for several years, with hopes of eventually turning them into a brooch bouquet.  Not that I am planning on getting married anytime soon, but I have fallen in love with how beautiful they are to display as a work of art.  I think I had accumulated enough brooches and […]
