Day 2 of Bernice's Gratitude Journal prompts and inspiration and the technique was circles or squares. I went with circles... Always been meaning to make myself a circle stencil, so at last the push to make one. I got out a piece of packaging acetate and rounded the corners. Then got the Big Bite out and made big and small holes.
The sunshine made me happy again today, also go some new coloured lights for outside the house this Christmas and shopping went without a hitch and I even got a queueless checkout - Yippee.
A gratitude journal is such a wonderful thing. Loving your home made stencil! What kind of white pen are you using? I love my Marvy Marker and Reminisce pen, they are my 2 favorites! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
It certainly is a very effective technique BJ and really loving your Big Bite, not seen one of those for ages and a great idea for making stencils too. Crafty hugs, Anne x
Your page has such a dreamy feel to it BJ

I love the purples! Great page.
I wonder which white pen you are using, BJ. I use a Uni-Ball Signo Broad UM-153 Gel Ink Pen 1.0mm Tip - I get these from Tiger Pens, which is an excellent site for all sorts of pens. It's a roller-ball type pen with water-based ink, and it works very well, but you have to seal anything water-based before writing on top or it will pick up the colour - I use a spray fixative (see my blog post about my completed Remembrance art journal page when I upload it!). I find it works best if you don't press too hard. Hope this helps!
I love the soft muted lilac colours of this page. It's beautiful. Circles always work for me!!
