It's impossible to tell how tiny these pages are when you're viewing them online. This one fits in the palm of my hand with room to spare. The writing is miniscule. The back of this page was fortified with lots of collage elements, which strengthened it sufficiently so that most of the background on this side could be used as-is. It's often more of a challenge to do that than to start from scratch. The aim is for a cohesive whole, not a page with things stuck on top of it.
I'm sticking to my sticker on each page plan. The puffy "hello!" works here.
This is page 4 in my Swatches journal. As I mentioned in a previous post, I bound the book using pages from discarded library books. Every page had a rip or a tear or dirty marks and folds. I love using parts of them as a base for collage. Every once in a while, parts of what was once a really delightful page will be salvageable, and I love giving new life to the old page by incorporating it into a new one.
