It's interesting how writing can change the whole look of a collage.
This whole "art journaling" thing which has been a name coined for combining drawing and writing in a book format is very interesting. It's like anything that can be turned into a market will be. You can now buy "art journal" sketchbooks which are specifically designed for collaging, writing, painting. (which the ones from Strathmore I must say are awesome.) When artists started making artist trading cards, then a whole new market for that opened up, such as selling the blank cards, selling embellishments and papers and so forth. It's just interesting. I wonder what the next new fad will be in the mixed media art world.
