Art journaling one page from start to finish requires more spare time than I've had lately. Instead, I've been doing one type of art/one medium on a page at a sitting. Then I'll flip through the journal looking for another place when I can use the same media and technique. It is a fun, mindless, low commitment way to do art journaling when I really don't have time.
I love my Jane Girl stencils. I'm probably over using them. But then I'll just look back on this year and maybe call it "the year of the Jane Girl stencils".
The generic stenciling adds a nebulous layer which ultimately enhances a feeling of depth.
