Art Journaling: “Record” Your Thoughts

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner for my Circle Journal, but I got this idea to create a “Record” to record my thoughts. I’m old school and had “45’s” growing up with my favorite music singles. This journal is styled after those fun little nuggets.

This is a simple journal page where journaling is the key factor. Record your thoughts and feelings to complete the look of the disc.

I started out using the Simon Says Stamp Nested Circles to cut out my record parts from black cardstock and Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor cardstock. I used the 5 1/2″, 3 1/2″, and 1 1/2″ dies.

I used Tim Holtz Distress Paste through a stencil for texture and once dry, I added color with Distress Spray Stains. I completed my page by journaling in the “grooves” of the record with a silver Reminisce pen.
