Journal play made easy

Hi Peeps,

I would just like to give a big thank you to the artists out there that are making their art available for us, with lesser drawing skills, to use in our art journals.

It makes it easier for me to get started on a page if I have an image that inspires me. Here are some of those pages with the help of Dina Wakley and Marlene Meijer-van Niekerk (AKA art by Marlene)

I will mix and match pieces from both artist too to make up my own collage page.
White 6x6 journal by Dina Wakley.

For instance the circles and birds are from Dina Wakley's Collage collective and the flowers are from Art by Marlene collage papers.

I did an acrylic paint background and then added some white paint over the top and removed some of with a wet wipe through a stencil. Dry it off and then glue your collage images on with some matt gel medium.

The Dina Wakley collage paper faces are awesome to work with.

The word packs one and two are a must for your quotes.

When your page is dry don't forget to go back in with your black fude ball pen and add some marks and scribbles.

Hope you have some fun playing in your journals.
Thanks for looking.
