Gettin' Groovy: A Circle Themed Art Journal Spread


Jennifer Gallagher here again with a geometric-inspired art journal spread for this month's theme of Frame It or Fill It With Circles.

When I saw the theme, it was a no-brainer. I am obsessed with geometric shapes and patterns. So, I've pulled out one of my all-time favorite StencilGirl Products® stencils and set out to create a fun technique for a spread that is full of movement and color.

This page begins with a loose background created with Marabu Art Crayons in a warm color story. The art crayons, when applied with water, give us a watercolor-like effect. Next, using the Random Circles Stencil, I applied DecoArt Americana Premium Heavy Gel Medium Gloss through the stencil. Once dry it gives us a recessed design to apply watered down India Ink in Sepia. A few finishing touches later, like paint splatters and doodling, and we have a finished journal spread full of interest.
