Ideas For Your Art Journal: Collage Clusters ***VIDEO***

Collage cluster art journal page with doodles and a heart from Kim Dellow

Collage clusters are one of my favourite design formats. You know these, it is when you cluster together elements to put on your project. When I was designing cards more regularly for magazines I would use collage clusters a lot. But they are great for your art or junk journal too.

So let’s have a play and I have my Digi-Delightful downloads from my Patreon to work from, you can grab these too if you want them. But you can use anything you have to hand for your collage clusters or make your own papers and ephemera to collage with. Grab a journal and let’s start this new art year with some clusters!
