how to: journal collages

Journaling at its core is simply words on paper.
 I do lots of that, but I also love to make what I call "serendipities" in my journals, which are just little spreads or collages of different things that go well together and look pleasing to the eye.

 Scrapbook paper, pictures, quotes, and even tea packaging 
can all go together in a lovely fashion.

 Add magazine pictures and paint chips for extra dimension. 

 Anything goes as far as collages. 
Play around with different stuff you have on hand, 
arranging and rearranging it in different ways before you glue it.
I like to deconstruct old books and magazines for collages, 
snipping out poems, lines, and quotes that catch my eye.

 I made this spread in honor of NaNoWriMo 2013.

Don't forget to add a list!
