I decided to create a collage in my art journal using torn paper along with cut paper to create contrast.
I gathered some images from magazines, tearing some and cutting some with scissors.
Because I created this stage quickly and without much conscious thought I didn’t get any step-by-step photos. I do like how the orange color in the middle contrast with the blue and green of the rest of the composition.
And what’s a spread in my art journal that doesn’t include some doodles?
I used wavy lines in my doodles to mirror the irregular edges of the torn paper.
And then I used a smooth line to draw the circles to mirror the smooth edges of the cut paper.

Cubism was founded by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. This art style emphasizes flat shapes and ignores traditional perspective. My design is inspired by Synthentic Cubism, which features simple overlapping shapes and brilliant colors.
