Each and every single time I create a journal page I think to myself, why don't I make art like this more often?!  It is such a freeing and expressive way to get out whatever it is that is inside of you that wants/needs out!  Sometimes it's just more about having fun, getting messy, and moving collage/paint around without any care of whether or not it's good.   Your journal is a place for you to surrender all of your thoughts, cares, and feelings, without any worry about what the results look like.  

For this exercise collage was my focus, but I also added acrylic paint, crayon, and tape/stickers.

A great place to find collage is in discarded children's books from library sales, recycling centers, or online.
