Journal collage art is a fun project that uses little bits of paper and embellishments that are already lying around in your craft space. I always have cut-out pieces and embellishments in a small box on my table and I empty it by making little works of art. It’s so much fun and satisfying because they can be accomplished in such a short time.
I like going through my stamp sets because they often have greetings and quotes that are encouraging and uplift the spirit. It’s so delightful to be able to stamp them in my collage.
Collage gives me an opportunity to repurpose items that would have otherwise gone to landfill. The card stock I used are business cards that have misprint or outdated information on them. I gave them a second chance at life by turning them into something beautiful.
So what do we use these collage artworks for? They make gorgeous bookmarkers, card and scrapbook embellishment, gift tags and journaling prompts for your journal spreads. How about slipping one in your child’s lunchbox as inspiration for the day? These days we could all use a little dose of happiness wherever we can find it. Take that opportunity to make someone smile.
So, next time that you’re card making, scrapbooking or doing any paper craft, save your little pieces in a small box. Every once in a while, empty the contents by making little journal collage art. It’s a beautiful little mindful activity that’s relaxing and takes you away from the screen.
I hope that you enjoyed this little inspiration and that you’ll give it a go. Happy crafting!
