Mini Collage Journal Flip Thru

Last Fall we were having some work done in our house and my studio was packed away while the room was painted and floors were sanded. During that time, I packed up a travel art kit of small collage ephemera in take out sushi containers, a liquid glue pen, and a mini Eccolo journal... a lot like a Moleskine with lined pages. I decided to use it for collage because it had notes in it from whomever used it before me and I wanted to cover those up.

Filling these pages gave me a different view of collage...I would just put in whatever caught my eye and eventually each page had a focus, at least for me. I knew if it needed one more big item, or a smaller item, and I dug through my little ephemera kits to search for the perfect item. I wasn't too fussy, and I think that is evident. It was such a fun project, very loose and relaxed. 

Eventually this book split at the seams three times and then separated from the binding and cover all together. I repurposed the binding and about 40 blank pages for a collaboration journal that is currently travelling the world, and rebound this booklet into a little collection of treasures. Here is a video flip through for you to enjoy!
