Introduction: Girls Who Read Art Journal Project
Step 1: Prep Your Pages
Lightly mist your pages with water, and then spritz with spray inks. Dab the ink with a paper towel roll between layers, and keep adding color until you are satisfied with the look.
Step 2: Stenciling and More Stenciling
Stencil in layers on your pages, spraying with white ink and dabbing away the excess as you go.
Once you're happy with the background, use a heat tool to dry your pages a bit.
When the pages are dry to the touch, layer an alphabet stencil onto the right page, and spread a thin layer of texture paste over it with a palette knife. Using texture paste with stencils makes the results smooth and crisp.
Step 3: Collage and Finish
Cut out the desired images and text, and glue them onto your pages. Outline the text and images with a black journal pen, and stamp text onto the left page. Finish by lightly spraying a little more color on the corners.
