|Mini-Journal No. 15 - 02|
A question came up yesterday about how I go about doing these mini collages. Where do I start? What about the pen work? I start by adhering background papers. I find them here, there, everywhere. I then add middle ground and finally the foreground before doing the pen work. So in this case I added decorative papers that had been cut into smaller size pieces. I then add some washi tape to the valley fold and then the lantern for middle ground. The dog was the last piece of ephemera I added. The pen work comes after all the collaging. It might look like the pen work was done before the lantern and the dog but it was not.
Great job, John! These mini-journals are gorgeous.
And your enjoyment doing them, come thru to us as we enjoy them.
