Junk Journal July – Prompt 16 – Maximalism

Prompt 16, Maximalism – It’s a style or technique that embraces excess and extravagance. Maximalists believe that more is more. They focus on quantity and quality and surround themselves with as many things as possible. They want to have everything they desire, and they want it to be loud, colourful, and sometimes chaotic.

Junk Journal July - Prompt 16

OK, so I haven’t gone for the colourful bit completely! Not sure why I didn’t add more colour, as I love lots of colour normally. My idea for this page was really focussed on fitting in as much as I could while still looking cohesive.

So, I collaged the main pages. I stamped on there too. I used texture paste on some blue paper and then punched out some circles. I added the flowers with some gorgeous brads which I have had forever! My idea for maximalism in this instance was putting lots on the page but still making is gel together. The opposite of clean and simple. Easy for me really, as this is sort of my style anyway!

Less really is a bore!
