Tower Bridge Collage

Hi Everyone! I'm back today with another collage page for my Recycle and Collage challenge at Art Journal Journey. It features a picture of the building of Tower Bridge, which is my favourite bridge in London. I see it from my train every time I travel up to town. It's so pretty with its blue and gold towers, like a fairytale castle.

The bridge photo came from an old Civil Engineering magazine my husband was throwing out, and I collaged other parts of the magazine with music paper, printed tissue and teabags. I scraped some DecoArt Crackle Paste over the collage, and when this was dry, I added stencilling, splatters and journaling.

Wishing you a creative weekend,

Alison xox

  7. Beautiful pages! Tower Bridge is my favourite too with its blue and gold towers and you have captured it beautifully on your page with the colours and collage magazine bits 😀. I hope you are having a lovely weekend! J 😊 x

  8. It's amazing to see the Tower Bridge as it was being built, because I have only seen it in movies or on TV. It's a lovely journal page. I have never had good luck with crackle paste, and the kind I bought was already dried up before I ever opened it. Your use of it was stunning. So glad you chose this page to share with others at Art Journal Journey, dear.

  9. I hope you don't mind me condensing my comments into this one! You really have been producing some amazing pages and cards! Especially love those gelli print cards and today's page! Love the addition of the crackle paste! Hugs, Chrisx
