Adding interesting characters to your art journal is an easy way to 
construct an art journal page using things found around your home. 
By collecting collage materials from everyday ephemera such as 
newspapers, magazines, junk mail, school papers, and grocery lists, 
you can create a character that represents you in a symbolic way. 
Building a story around your new character collage is an exercise
in creativity that is both fun and enlightening.

If you don’t create in art journals, you can easily apply these 
techniques to standard collage surfaces.
