My art journal page from yesterday evening's gathering. Inspired by the following quote:
"The bad news is you’re falling through the air, nothing to hang on to, no parachute. The good news is, there’s no ground."
Acrylics and collage on recycled A3 product catalog.

Lots of collage elements, including the little girl drawn by a little girl :-). Acrylics, ink, stamps using an old carton cylinder.
I hope you will reconsider.
Here's what I used for this spread:
If you've been following my posts on social media, you might recognize this art journal as the recycled fashion / product catalog. I ripped out pages to thin it out so that it could take all the additional thickness of collage and layering and paint. I made use of the images already there on some of the pages. You'll see them peeping through occasionally.
For this spread, I used acrylics and black ink brush pen, and yummy gellatos from Faber Castell!
This time I went for a thin layer of acrylics, letting the background peek through slightly. I added the face with a Uni Pin black pen and white corrector pen.
#pages from my two times recycled #artjournal :)
I created this whole journal from signatures made of recycled paper shopping bags.
Collage using art left overs and unused paint. Always making something from nothing..

"In my mind live dozens of houses, and in those houses live dozens of insecurities"
#pages from my #artjournal
This is the AUB booklet I'm recycling. I used acrylics to paint the background. Mostly Wedgwood blue, I added strips of the scrap paper I have under my work as I paint. These papers are usually so colourful and textured as a result of all the paint dripping on them.
For the face I used neon paints and gold, black and white markers. For the houses, too.
