Art Journal Journey Collage

Hi everybody!

Just a short post today, I am tired out after celebrating my birthday!

For Art Journal Journey I made another collage in my giant journal. I worked on craft paper, using a variety of paper scraps, some hand-painted,  antique linen, a Dina Wakley stenciled face trimmed with washi tape, a stamped image and some zig-zag stitching. I really enjoy making these collages just out of scraps and 'waste' bits.






That's all for today!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  15. Ich mag das Gesichtchen gerne ... Dina Wakley ist sowieso eine von der mir fast alles gefällt..
    hab ein Schwäche für ihre Arbeiten!
    Du hast das wieder perfekt alles kombiniert..so viele kleine Teilchen und dann mit Geduld eine bezaubernde Arbeit geschaffen!
    Du hast Dich hoffentlich inzwischen erholt vom Geburtstagsstress Val!

  20. I like the way you have used washi tape to make her hair, first time I have seen it used in this way.
    No outdoor photos!!!!! Is this a first!!!!! I paged down to see them and fell off the edge, but I'm back now.

  22. Another great collage, Valerie. I like that you use sewing in your designs. That is something I don't do so I really admire it in others.
    Blessing hugs,
