The Stencil Girl Design Team is at it again! Check out the amazing art journal spread created by Jennifer Armstrong, a columnist for Stencil Girl. I’m honored that she chose my book, Art at the Speed of Life, to create a project from. She used some of my stencil designs for her own take on that project and I’m in love with the journal page she came up with. You have to go HERE to check it out and please leave a comment there for a chance to win $50 worth of my stencils and a signed copy of Art at the Speed of Life!!!
I just wanted to share some art journaling goodness with you all:-) I was thrilled to get my contributor copy of Art Journaling magazine and find me work on the cove! It totally caught me by surprise. As most of you know, I love art journaling and it’s my go to vehicle to teach workshops. They are such a valuable tool for any artist.

These inks work well for filling spray bottles and in refillable marker type tools. (Montana brand works great!)
These inks are washable in water while wet, making cleanup quick and easy. Brushes, pens and airbrushes clean easily in water. They come in a tip resistant bottle with a dropper tip to make filling tools and direct application easy. They need to be shaken before use and they have a stainless steel ball in the bottle to help with mixing.

Pam Carriker’s Mixed Media Adhesive
A quality adhesive is vital to Mixed Media Artists, and Pam Carriker’s Signature Mixed Media Adhesive (MMA) will help you achieve results you can’t with traditional collage glues. Non-sticky and extremely matte in both feel and appearance, MMA makes it possible to use any other media over it with no tell-tale line where the adhesive ends. MMA is so matte that even delicate watercolor applications, pencil sketches, and fine art pens can be used right over the top of it. Worries about paper wrinkles or bubbles disappear as MMA handles even tissue paper with ease and keeps Art Journal pages from sticking together. Try MMA today and feel the difference!
