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 Journal Pages: Sports Theme

In light of the just completed Summer Olympic Games, I am a bit late with today’s collage journal pages, which all have sports-related themes.

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 […]

For today’s collage art journal share, I tried something new for the first time with one of my collages. I got the above images from a sports magazine article about the arrival of the Giants baseball team from New York to San Francisco in 1958.  I thought the image of Willie Mays sitting in the […]

Collage Art Journal: Pages 12-14

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 […]

Interview with Amanda White, Collage Artist and Painter

As I talked about in my last two posts here and here, I love collage art and collage artists.  I am always in awe of what artists can do with paper and things that most people would normally throw away, so I was especially interested when Etsy profiled the collage art of Amanda White, who sells […]
