    Art Journal: Collection


    A productive morning of collage therapy, resulting in lots of collages to use for experiments...

    1. Made a collage in a wire-bound watercolor pad
    2. Painted a layer of white gesso on the collage with a wet sponge
    3. Painted randomly with Golden fluid acrylics, fully saturated color or thinned with matte medium.... {at this point, I was sure I had ruined it but then gesso to the rescue}
    4. Another layer of gesso.
    5. Edged with charcoal pencil and neocolors {learned that charcoal pencil basically gives everything a greyish look, I much prefer neocolors}
    6. Ready for journaling... or further embellishment...

    This page is one of 6 Collages 6 Ways.

    A collage is a fun way to start an art journaling page, just think of it as your base or first layer. Then you can embellish or alter it:
