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!
