Start with A Stencil!
Updated: Mar 29
As you may already know (if you've read earlier posts or taken part in a pre-pandemic Junk Journal Art Play Date with me;), I always use what I call “art papers” as part of any junk journal that I make. This usually includes a heavy weight paper for the cover and several other different papers that will be pages in the junk journal. StencilGirl® stencils are a great way to add color and marks to these papers! This allows me to set up a color scheme for the journal, and gives me some ready-made backgrounds and marks to start from as I work in the journal later on. So, I'm not confronted with a blank page all the time. An added bonus: My junk journals tend to be a little smaller than my other art journals, whether they are bound blank ones or altered books. Lately, I've been a little pressed for time, so the junk journals have been fun to make and instant gratification to work in!
I am so honored and happy to be a Guest Designer on StencilTalk, again! Hop on over to their blog, StencilGirl® Talk to see my post, which explains this video in a little more detail.
