Our last big project for Joanne Sharpe’s Letter Love course was to make a “Letter Loved” journal with pre-inked and sprayed pages. I started with random sizes of watercolor paper, and sprayed and inked them with my stencils. Messy, but oh, so much fun! While I was at it, I also inked up a large piece of canvas, with the intent of using it for the cover of my journal somehow. Joanne taught us how to make a simple journal without stitching, held together with tape. I took her concept, and kicked it up a notch, using my bookbinding skills and supplies.
So, here is what I started with…lots of inky goodness! I have a pretty extensive collection of stencils! I used various spray inks, including Radiant Rain, my newest addition to my collection.
Next, a few cuts, a little glue, and lots of tape later…
What do you think? I love it! Can you tell which stencil is my current fave? Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂
