While I am certainly doing lots of "stuff" these days, not much is at a stage where it can be shared. Sorry. I'd love to have you all looking over my shoulder.
But, in the meantime, I've been doing a little journaling too. Just a page every few days. I can already see some improvements in my composition and skill using unfamiliar tools. Still a long way to go to be called a Collage artist, but here is a little eye-candy along the way.
tissue paper gessoed onto the pages.
finger painted self(?) portrait
different kinds of tape, then painted over and rubbed with a paper towel
permission slip is inside envelope
Doesn't this look like a fun mess? Let me tell you, the first thing on the permission slip should be "Permission to make messes" 'cause that's what I've done plenty of!
