Magazine Collages For Junk And Art Journals

Magazine Collages For Junk And Art Journals

You can create a collage from a picture in a magazine or a catalog, This is a wonderful recycling project that can be made mostly with things that you probably have on hand.

This technique is so relaxing and enjoyable. With only a few supplies, you can create a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork. Create these pages with either magazine images or decorative napkins. 


Modge Podge or other decoupage medium
Craft glue
Old credit card or gift card
Cloth or cosmetic squares
A small and medium paintbrush
Magazine images or decorative napkins

  1. Rip at least one page of a magazine into small pieces. Keep the clean edges of the page as much as possible. Set aside
  2. Glue two pages together with craft glue. Apply the glue. Spread with an old greeting card. Put together and smooth with the heal of your hand. 
  3. Allow to dry.
  4. With the medium paintbrush apply glue to the back of each piece of the ripped magazine page.
  5. Apply to the art journal page. Use the edge pieces of the magazine page on the edges of your journal page,
  6. Allow to dry
  7. Apply the acetone to the pieces with the cosmetic sponge or cloth
  8. Gradually remove all color from the pages.
  9. Once the color is removed, allow the page to dry.
  10. If you are using a napkin image, use a small paintbrush with water to " cut" around the image to fit your page
  11. If you are using a magazine image, trim around the image to fit the page
  12. Using a paintbrush, add decoupage medium ( Modge Podge) to the page
  13. Carefully place your image or napkin piece to the page
  14. Cover the image with additional glue spreading it over the piece
  15. Add additional images and trims the same way
  16. Allow the page to dry
