(please click images to view larger)
[left to right]
1. "true"- is this too busy??

collage using various ephemera , origami paper, japanese text, a postage stamp, other images, and ink on 8.5" x 11.5" kraft cardstock for my art journal.

2. "verde"- is this finished?

i feel like maybe i should write something in all that open space. sometimes (like now) i just don't know when to stop.

collage using a vintage advertisement, music score, and page of a book, catalog images, a sticker, and ink on 8.5" x 11" cardstock for my art journal.

3. "scent"- mixed media collage for art journal. acrylic paint, vintage and modern advertisements, and ink on watercolor paper. i really love this one.

Joleen, I think everything looks lovely. I esp. love Verde. I understand about wanting to fill up the space, but it doesn't feel like it needs it to me. Though, adding writing wouldn't detract, either. True is not too busy. I love the hand-drawn bits around the background.

I think they are gorgeous....I'm drawn to open spaces though, so #2 and 3 are my favorites!
