Because I love books and I love to make art, I have quite the collection of art technique books. Every now and then I like to grab one of the books and do one of the exercises.
For this project I chose the book Collage Journeys (

I already had some painted backgrounds in my art journal that I made with the brayer when I was creating gel prints. This was one of my favorites.
Then I went through my stash of papers and chose sheets with compatible colors.
I cut the papers into lots of different organic and geometric shapes.
I chose some of the shapes to glue onto the background. I’m liking the composition but think it needs something to create some more interest.
I added doodles to the lighter color papers, I think it looks pretty good now.
