Sunday Collage Challenge

Journal Junk Image Challenge 7.29


Awhile back, I created journal entry collage challenges over on Flickr. Life got in the way, and I got busy, but I'm back and ready to start 'em up again! What I love about these challenges is seeing the different ways in which each of us use the same basic images; it's amazing how wonderfully different and original we all are as artists.

I've collected random images from my collection and put them together on an 8.5 x 11 (US Letter) sheet for easy printing.

Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to create a journal entry using at LEAST THREE images on the sheet.

You may use MORE than 3, but no less. Think creatively; a framed photo is not only a photo, but a frame or border for something else, a flower a background to be sanded down. A clock has more parts than the whole. Bits and pieces, cut from the complete picture, can change an entire collage. And yes, using pieces counts as using an image.

Those are the only rules. You can use anything else in your collection of supplies, but it MUST be a journal entry (and journal is how you define it; loose leaf pages together are still pages in a journal).

Because of the image's size (hi-rez), it's available as a PDF download only.

Think you're up to the challenge? There are no winners or losers -- more an exploration of your own creativity and the thrill of seeing how differently we use the same images in our own journals. ;)

Post your journal entry either on your blog or on Flickr, and leave a comment here with a link so we can all see each others' fantastic entries.

I'll post a new image challenge each Sunday; you can ALWAYS go back and do a previous one -- there are no due dates. It's a fun experiment, though, and I hope you all participate!
