Live Creatively Journal Page


DSC01037Jen Matott here with a journal page to share.  I used Faber- Castell Design Memory Craft's Square Journal board for this page.  It has the perfect surface for all the media that I love to use!  I colored with Gelatos first and used a bit of water with a brush to blend.  I did smear a bit with my fingers too... I like to get into my work!  The background colors are from the Gelatos 50's Diner Designers Colors set.  

Using a circle template, I filled a few in circles with Gelatos and then rubbed with my finger to blend.

Then, I stamped through the stencil with a text stamp and a Stamper's Big Brush Pen.  A "Live Creatively" stamp from Studio Calico was stamped with the same pen ink.  I also sketched some circles in a couple places.

This colorful page makes me happy and reminds me to create each day!
