Dylusions Collage Sheets offer so much unique imagery to create an incredible spread in your mixed media journal. Follow along with this tutorial by Megan Whisner Quinlan to learn just how easy it is!

Instructions 
The Dylusions Collage Sheets invite you to PLAY and have fun in your art journal. There are so many options and combinations with the images, that each spread can truly be a unique piece that can be a springboard for your journaling and doodles.

Dylusions Collage Sheet Journal Spread Step 1

Step 1: Using your Mini Blending Tool blend two complementary colors onto 2 pages in your Large Dylusions Journal, here we used Fresh Lime and Turquoise to create a grassy foreground and an upper sky.

Step 2: Find and cut out images from your Dylusions Collage sheets that will create a “village” theme. The sheets include some houses, but you can also cut out the abstract shapes from the sheets into houses as well. Find some images that can create a person for your page. This is the fun part!

Step 7: Start auditioning your pieces around to create a scene. Once you have your images where you like them, begin to glue them down. Sometimes taking a picture with your phone before you begin, incase your collage pieces move around.
