Collage doesn't have to be a long messy process only done in your art studio; it can be adapted to fit your busy life.
In this collage video, artist, author and experienced workshop instructor, Gina Rossi Armfield makes collage for the art journal an accessible process for everyone because the materials are simple, and the inspiration is in the bits and bobs you collect as you live life.
You'll create a monthly inspiration board to provide prompts for your journaling throughout the rest of the month, create a travel collage to document the more exotic experiences of your life and create a poetry journal collage using your own photographs. Plus Gina will share some of the many amazing things your can do with washi tape and guide you as you create your own signature stamps that can be used in your art journal collages. Paired with Gina's forthcoming book No Excuses Art Journaling: Making Time for Creativity, this video ensures you have no excuses not to art journal.
