This time I've been playing with Jessica's Jump for Joy stencil, which looks like this...
How fun are these images?!!! Perfect for art journaling!
I used the Jump for Joy stencil to create this page in my Road Atlas journal. It was so simple to do...
I wanted to journal on this page, and still be able to see the map peeking out from the background; so I busted out my distress stains in a variety of pink and orange shades, and made a bunch of huge wonky circles. (Keeping in mind the pink and orange color scheme for this week's Summer of Color Challenge). I added in wavy lines to write on, and did the journaling with black and white journaling pens. I left some of the circles without writing, just for variation.
After I was done, I felt like it needed something to give it some pizazz, and Jessica's images were just the right thing!
I used a sponge dauber, to pounce through the stencil's words and images, which worked really well to preserve the fine detail of Jessica's design. After that, I outlined the words with gel pens, and added a little pattern to the women's outfits - just for fun.
Please check out Jessica's blog, and the other test-driving artists to see more ways to use this fun stencil!!!
