Art Journaling with Shari Carroll

Welcome to the blog!! It’s Shari here with a different type of Art Journal page. For the next couple of months, I will be adding to this new idea of a Circle Journal. This page started out with Canson Watercolor paper and the Simon Says Stamp Nested Circle dies. I used the largest die which is 5.5″.

I’ve been wanting to focus on some inking techniques and what better way but to cut my specialty papers as I go and give it a try! I will eventually bind these pages together with binder rings to hang in my craft space as a reminder.

The Galaxy background is one I haven’t tried yet. I thought it would be a perfect start to this new year and the new decade. I’ve used regular Distress inks for this one and I’m sure I’ll be trying this same technique with Oxides on down the road.

I hope I’ve inspired you to step out of your box and try a shape journal full of techniques along with me. Enjoy!!

  1. Great idea! I enjoy making journals, but never thought of using my shape dies. Come to think of it, this technique would also work great with the large rectangular nesting set! Thanks for sharing, I will have to add this to my things to try list.

  2. Awesome page, I love that you worked on a circle!
    I’m lookin forward to this years Art Journal videos from you, always learn something.
    Thank you so much for sharing and have a great week.

  3. Great project Shari. Love the galaxy background. I never realize how many colors there are in these backgrounds but each serves a purpose to make a lovely night sky!
