My latest journal cover with handcut stencils, acrylic paint, ballpoint pen. I love the way the ballpoint pen sinks into the paint and creates texture. The text is the beginning of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay Self Reliance.

I love the combination of stencils and mono-print papers in my art journal. In both of these spreads I started with pages from the index book of an old encyclopedia and then added mono-printed papers and handcut stencils with acrylic paint, acrylic drips and colored pencils. I also used acrylic paint pens for some of the detail work. The curlicue stencil works great as ‘rays’ coming from the celestial bodies. I love the delicacy of these new stencils and with patience, they’re not as hard to cut as you would think.
