StencilGirl Blog Hop Featuring Kae Pea In My Daily Art Journal


Welcome to the StencilGirl Blog Hop featuring Kae Pea. If you have arrived from Leslie's blog you are on the right track and you are at the end of the HOP! If not and you are just visiting I am continuing on my quest to post for 10 days straight on my blog right along with the blog hop.


I did my project on my journal do keep with my 10 days. Here are some progression photos of my spread. I started by using Simple Geo Circles and Simple Geo Squares to build a foundation on my page. I then used two Rubbermoon stamps on my page. 



Here is the result:


I then added some watercolor and used parts and pieces from stencils: Mid Century Modern Elements #1, Mid Century Modern Elements #3, and Mid Century Modern Elements #2 to make my "paintings" across the page. I absolutely LOVE 4" x 4" stencils from StencilGirl. They are fun to keep in your journal and use bits and pieces of. You can see all the 4" x 4" StencilGirl stencils HERE.



I added some numbers to correspond with my journal entries for next week and I am all set to add a little journaling here and there every day!



Before you go, make sure you leave a comment for the GIVEAWAYS on StencilGirl Talk. All comments in the hop are eligible!

  5. Sometimes people's imagination astounds me, and this does. I would never be able to journal over this. Sometimes simplicity just works. I love this.
