Today's subject is Art Journal – Persistence.

Between the Lines Series

Here is the second installment in my new Blog Series, Between the Lines.  As you might know, I have a bit of a stencil stash. This series lets me highlight one at a time in a unique way. I'm pairing handwritten quotes with the lines created inside stencil designs.

Art Journal – Persistence

The journaling lines for this post come from StencilGirl Products' Dots and Dashes stencil, which was designed by my friend Jessica Sporn.

I started out with a journal page that already had various shades of blue paint.  After I spotted that Teesha Moore stamp in my drawer, I stamped her onto an old book page.

This girl seems to have a bit of an attitude, not to mention a funky outfit. I googled ‘persistence' quotes and found one for her. Depending on the age of your book, the paper may be tear easily. As much as this seems to be a problem, you can reinforce the paper by swiping a thin layer of matte medium on front and back. After that it'll be easy to cut even intricate shapes out.

For the purpose of creating journal space, I used Stazon ink on top of the painted page.  The ink blending tool handles this nicely.

    Another cool journal page! I like the stamp and the quote. That’s always the struggle sometimes – what to write when the page is done.
