Art Journaling With Stencils and Texture

Hello...hello! Martha Richardson here...I'm so excited to be designing for Frog Dog Studio. I love the concept of this new mixed media kit club...not only will we share our projects from the monthly kit but also tutorials on how we created our projects. I have found my true passion in mixed media!

Today I have tutorials for you using the exclusive stencil in June's kit and the Pink Paislee Expressions Wood Shop in Sawdust. I used these to finish a page in one of my art journals. I have several art journals that I work on at a time and love the NO PRESSURE behind creating a journal page. I was never happy with the before page...random colors wiped onto the page as I was cleaning up from other pages {I just hate to waste any my paints, inks, sprays}. It was a page that I knew would someday come together and now I love the final effect.

I'm trying a new way to do a tutorial...more pictures...less writing. So let's get to it!

I hope you enjoyed these tutorials and I would love to know what you think about the presentation...too much...too little? Any suggestions would be truly appreciated!

Have a great weekend...hope to get some creative time about you?
