Art Journal Journey -- Collage

This month on AJJ the subject has been chosen by Susi. It's Collage but with no Faces, Leaves or Wings. Sounds easy until you actually start working on it. I am especially drawn to leaves and I found myself searching through my stamps and dies with very little success. In the end I used tissue paper,  lightweight hand made papers and scrappy bits from my scrap box. I ripped them into bits and stuck them down in a scene. I used a stamp for the little girls which was the only one I had without faces. The bushy type bits in the foreground are bits of scrunched up bits of kitchen paper used to mop up ink.


I am also entering this in Try it on Tuesday -- Hand-made by you.

This is seriously lovely, it looks like a painting, and it is even more wonderful to read how you made it as a collage. I like the lake and the hills and all of it.

I can see why the girls are looking at the view - it's spectacular! The blue colour you have chosen and the mountain range you have created are so beautiful - I love it! Wishing you a happy week! J :-)
