Journal spread: collage: tweaked proportions

In the times of crisis, art is a the bond that keeps us balanced and present. While you cannot go outside too much, you can definitely create new art pages. Depending on how much time you have in this imposed quarantine, you can even create more art than usually. I have grabbed my small B6 art journal and created a new collage spread, this time using a paper to cover the whole spread with collage.

I kinda like working in this little sketchbook turned into an art journal with the use of collage paper, inserts and most of all, gesso! When you gesso thin pages you instantly create a new waterproof layer ready for new art work. Some might prefer to draw directly on paper, but I'm a fan of gessoed paper. I'm halfway through this gorgeous journal and I can't wait to add more drawings to it!
