Hi readers! Happy Sunday to you! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been noticing more and more Art Journaling in the crafty world! It seems like it is so freeing, lots of fun, & even therapeutic in a way. You can craft at will, and throw worries of perfection away! We love to share a monthly feature with Shari Carroll on our blog, but have decided to make it a weekend theme this month! In keeping with the Art Journaling theme, we’re back today with a whole lot of COLOR and fun inspiration from Design Memory Craft designer Jennifer Matott!
This art journal page was inspired by COLOR! I wanted to create with LOTS of colors. Starting with randomly adding areas of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® to the page, I added water with a brush to spread and mix some of the colors. When dry, some circles of Gelatos® were added through the Circle stencil and smudged with my finger while the stencil was over the page.Next, I used the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper’s Big Brush Pen in Black to a non-stick mat and added water. Using a brush, I dripped the ink down the page from the top. After that dried, I applied the gold paste through a harlequin stencil with a palette knife and then stamped the phrase and harlequin stamp. Bling was added as a sparkly embellishment to this colorful journal!
Thanks for reading today, and thanks to Jen for being our awesome guest!

What stunning art journal pages! Love the bright colors and all the textures! TFS.
Glove all the colors and patterns and textures.
beautiful and fantastic page!!!
Beautiful! I love the bright colors.
This is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing your talent with us.
I laughed at the Tim Holtz stamp, however, because it means, “Courage is being yourself ordinary…..”
Everyday (one word) means ordinary.
Every day (two words) means each day.
This stamp means, in effect, that courage is being yourself ordinary in a world that expects you to be someone else. What does that mean?
A hint I used with my sixth grade class: I wear my everyday shoes every day.
I hate having to cut apart a stamp to correct word usage., so will not be purchasing the stamp.
What gorgeous color! I have only just begun to explore my Gelatos.
great project, can’t wait to see more art journals
