How to Collage in Your Art Journals

How to Collage in Your Art Journals
©2004 - 2006 by Aisling D'Art click any image to see it larger Collage is an easy way to add art to your diary or journal. For years, I started each day with a quick collage, the same as I used to to "morning pages" as described in the book, The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity. For me, collages are a more visual version of "morning pages." I usually allow a half an hour for each collage, but sometimes go back several times throughout the day to add things. 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. In an average journal, I'll gesso five to ten pages that I plan to use for painted, ornate or heavy collages. Remember that gesso is entirely optional. I use any gesso that's cheap, from the fine art supplies section of Michael's or any art supply store. I love layers in my work. Related:  art journaling artsread, write, think

Some entries in this canon are anthologies of an author’s complete works, while others are individual books that are perfect on their own; either way, these 35 volumes are required reading.
