Crash The Stash: Bird and Flower Collage Art Journal Page
By Nicole Austin
I love to create messy collage backgrounds in my art journal using up my collection of scrapbook paper and favorite paint colors. Adding collage elements like birds and flowers is one of my favorite ways to embellish an art journal page.
I also like to use words in my art and often I will use my kids’ homework paper–I love the look of kid handwriting! It’s also a way for me to save a bit of their childhood in my art journal.
