I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that Valerie was hosting this month's Art Journal Journey, which is collage. So I grabbed a new book (well, actually an OLD book gifted me by my friend Sally) and prepped it for my latest altered book I call Coll-AH-ge Too. Coll-AH-ge One is full, so it was time to devote another entire book to collage.
Since I'm used to creating my collages without words, Valerie's request for words on the page threw me for a loop. She made a good point, though, since it IS supposed to be a journal page.
So I dug through my words and had two that fit. I hunted and hunted, and finally found the words "paper bag" in the very book I was altering. I give you "Elevate paper bag style."
Thanks for the visit. It's so good to be on my own time schedule again, and I greatly appreciate you stopping by, even though it might be late (or early) in your world. And of course, this is my first of hopefully many collage entries at Art Journal Journey this month. Please join me, especially if you like collage.
