Circle paper art journal collage from The Handcrafted Story

Similar to last week’s paper collage art, this art journal page is part of a new batch of pages with a paper collage theme. I was interested in trying some paper collage, being inspired by Katie Licht’s collage work. I like how often she uses a limited colour palette and also how she often uses paper with words on it (I used some old book pages and scrapbook paper).

This time I tried using a single page rather than two pages. I think a single page makes me think it could be frameable art, and I really like that idea of making small pieces so I can change my artwork more frequently.
