Hello! My name is Megan Whisner Quinlan. I have been art journaling and book binding for about 20 years. However, I took a 10 year break from paper arts when I had my first 2 children. About 5 years ago, I came back into journaling after some big life changes, including 2 more children. Journaling had always been a part of my life, especially to work things out in life on paper. When I first started out, I really only focused on making books by hand and some basic collage and stamping. I was intimidated by the amazing art journaling artists out there who could create elaborate, mixed media spreads. When I came back to journaling after such a long break, I decided that I was going to really push myself to learn all the techniques I had been too afraid to try. Painting and drawing have really allowed me to find so much joy in my creative process, and I now almost exclusively create mixed media every day. I feel excited to have joined the art journaling community and you can find me on Instagram @Megan_Whisner_Quinlan or on Youtube: Megan Whisner Quinlan.

Megan Whisner Quinlan: May 2021 StencilClub Stencils
To get started, I scrounged around my studio for papers that I didn't really love or were experiments of one technique or another.
I chose a neon pink to use as the base color to stencil with this month's StencilClub stencil set by Mary Beth Shaw and Debi Adams onto all the pages.
Once I got the first layer on, I trimmed everything down to about a 4"x6" size sheet to make it easy to store for future use.
I then took another stencil from this month's StencilClub stencil set and added more layers with neon orange paint to add more texture.
