Collaging and Journal About The Dogs

Last spring I began to foster a puppy, Veto.

It has been fun watching my older male, Nik, mentor him.

I journaled about this in a sketchbook where I had a prepared background.

The process here was to sketch Nik on a separate piece of paper and cut him out.  I collaged him to the left page of the spread.  Next I colored the rest of the cut piece of paper with a yellow acrylic marker.  Finally I collaged that piece--with the empty dog shape-- onto the right half of the spread.

I hadn't planned what I was going to write, but the empty shape helped me capture my thoughts.

I don't usually do this sort of thing in my sketchbook, so it was fun!  Collage is something I hope to do more with some day.
