The most popular materials are pens (markers, felt tips, micron pens etc) and paints (acrylic, watercolor, oil etc), although I've seen everything from salt to tea bags being used! More materials you can use include: magazine pages, recycled book pages, ephemera, crayons, pencils, photos, pastels, newspaper, inks, different kinds of paper (tissue, crepe, parchment etc), leaves, and thin fabrics like muslin and cheesecloth.

The process starts with the determination that, whether it's good art or not, there will be a collage when I'm finished! Usually, I just work on the pages in a spiral-bound sketchbook, just as they are.

Sometimes I'll gesso a few pages my journal, ahead of time. I'll leave a few pages for writing, then allow two or three pages that are left blank for collage.
