Collage Journal Pages: Time and How We Feel About It

I have a confession to make.  I’ve been trying to find some commonalities in the collage journal pages I’ve been sharing here on my blog in order to come up with more interesting titles for my posts.  So far I’ve done okay.  For today’s post, I share with you two pages that have to do […]

Collage Journal Pages: Inspired by a Holiday Home Catalog

For today’s collage journal pages, I was inspired by one of those expensive holiday home catalogs you get in the mail. I really liked the image of the rustic fireplace and the warmth it evoked, so I decided to use it, but there was text in the upper left corner, so I cut it off […]

Collage Art Journal Pages: Women in Garden and Among Rocks

Sorry for the long hiatus from blogging!  I encountered some problems with the admin side of my blog, and then life got in the way.  But I’m back with two more collages from my journal. The black and white image of the woman caught my eye because of the somber expression on her face.  I […]

Collage Art Journal: Village-Themed Pages

As you can see in the title for this post, I’ve decided to come up with something more creative than “Pages such-and-such numbers” to describe my collage journal pages.  Maybe it helps that for this post, I have two collages with a similar theme, so we’ll see how far I get with this :~) The […]

Collage Art Journal: Pages 26-27

The inspiration for the first of today’s collage show-and-tell was actually the black and white image of cheering fans from my secondhand Vanity Fair book on the Oscars.  I decided to juxtapose it with a contemporary image of a glamorous woman.  The best image I had on hand was the one you see of the […]
