This week, the last week in my mini art journal challenge, I spent a lot of time with collage. I have always loved collage work and it was wonderful to finally spend some time learning more about it. A daily challenge is a great way to get things done and dive deeper and learn more about products or techniques.
I realized how much there is to learn and I find that very exciting and stimulating. I was surprised to discover my collage style so quickly - that rarely happens. It usually takes me forever to settle on a style. I often jump from one style to another because I want to try everything. I don't know if it's a benefit of a daily practice but I learned that I like to use grids in my collages. That doesn't mean I won't try other things because I am curious but I think you can expect to see more grids.
So, here's a look at the last pages of my mini art journal.
So, now what?
Well, I've decided to keep working on the mini art journaling challenge. I've had to move to another book because I have run out of pages in this one and it's time to change things up a little. The size is pretty similar to what I used in September but the pages are better quality. I'll talk about the book I'm using share more of the pages next week.
I want to see what will happen if I extend this challenge beyond 30 days. Will it still be enjoyable or will I burn out? Will I run out of ideas? I won't know until I try.
I will be sharing my progress and art journal pages daily on Instagram. I'm sharing my art journal pages there every day and that's a part of the process too. It keeps my accountable and it's exciting to share what I've made and to see how people react to it. You can find me @cathiereed.
Thanks for stopping by!
