Glue Journal - Pink

I'm continuing the practice of gluing paper scraps into my Smash journal. So, this week, I took a gelli print I had hanging around and then found pieces of pink to create a collage.  It came together very quickly. I just layered pieces to coordinate with the gelli print.  Then I noticed that the page also coordinates with the Red page because I repeated the "frond" in the print and some of the same colors. I really love the simplicity of using up my old scraps that never found a home.

Linking to Artsyville's Glue It Tuesday.

It is a terrific piece! I love the bold reds and the yellow just resting against it. It is a great way to use up those scraps that are just to awesome to toss.

great looking collage. I have what I'm calling a collage journal... which I guess is just like your journal - a place to glue in! My collage went together very quickly too - surprised me! {:-Deb

Very nice. It's fun to have things come together quickly, and I always delight in assembling those scraps bit into something new.
