I worked on a page last week and had paint left over on my pallet. I just can't waste the paint so I stenciled on a blank page in my recycled cookbook journal.
I started with a gessoed background. The green ovals are from a homemade stencil Lori West made for me. The rectangles are from a Delta stencil. This page sat for at least week because I had no clue what to do with it.
I decided I wanted to try out my new Crafter's Workshop stencil so I grabbed some Basic Acrylic Paint. The color is really a bit more pink than the photo shows. I was just playing around. I had no plan at all.
There is no great meaning. It is plain and simply a page of play. When I was all finished and it was dry I used a green paint pen and wrote about playing on top of the page. I like how tiny bits of the writing show here and there. Have you played in your journal lately?
