I'm looking forward to giving a demonstration
and mini-workshop on art journaling for
some fellow artists this weekend. One of them
suggested creating a hand-out of doodles, drawings,
and patterns that can be used along with collage
as elements on art journal pages. Excellent idea!
But...the possibilities are endless, so it was difficult
to decide what to include. Many times my drawings
repeat or echo elements found in the collage pieces,
whether they are magazine clippings or painted or
stamped images. Repetition is an element that
can strengthen a composition, and hand-drawn
patterns create a texture that adds interest.
