If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here. All of the previous posts can be found archived here. Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day! No need to finish anything or even like it. If you've done some art journaling this week, use the hashtag #artjournaleveryday so that we can all take a peek. Even if you're not on social media, you can see everything (from twitter, pinterest, instagram, and facebook) that uses that hashtag here.
I've got the last few pages of this current art journal to share with you today!
This first page features collage on the left and a lot of hand cutting on the right:
The collage is made up of leftover bits from other projects. I collect them in a little bin and then periodically I glue them all down to something. They're nothing individually, but all together, they're wonderful!
This page had the flowers stamped on it before I started cutting. So, I decided to keep them!
Last but not least, here are the endpapers:
You can see the sheet of deli paper I used to make up most of this spread here. When people ask me what I do with all the deli paper I make, the answer is: I use it!
Do you remember when I shared that art journal page featuring the word "Fish" cut out? The cut outs were too pretty to get rid of, so I glued them into the back of the journal.
I didn't realize it at the time, but looking at these three pages together, I realize that there is a theme: nothing goes to waste. It's all used in my art journal:
- scraps of paper get collaged
- cut outs are kept
- tags get glued or taped in
- printed deli paper gets used
Ever since I started "junque journaling" I have found that very little goes to waste in my studio. I used to worry about all this "stuff" I was making and what I was going to do with it, but now it gets archived in my journal over time. I love that!
Hope you feel inspired to use up some of the junque you have kicking around.
Thanks for stopping by!
