|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.
