Join me at the art table as I show you how to build up a layered art journal spread using collage paper from your stash.
If you’ve spent any amount of time in the mixed media art world, you would have a lovely stash of collage papers and ephemera — from old scrapbook paper to text pages, brown paper bags, vintage paper, music sheets, and even your own handmade collage papers or gelli prints.
And like any mixed media artist, you would constantly be on the lookout for interesting projects and uses for your stash of collage papers.
So, gather together some of your favorite papers, bring out your art journal and a few favorite colors of paint, and let’s create a sweet little mixed media collage art journal spread.
