Occasional ruminations concerning painted pages, hand bound books, the use of photos in journaling and the contemplation of various other pursuits.

By Golly, It's Gear Time!!

Mary Beth Shaw, through the website stencilgirlproducts.com, offers a multitude of high quality stencils for us to use in painting our pages.

This page, a signature in my art retreat journal, is many layers of paint, textured with blotted sprays of water, and a top layer of burnt umber wiped off through Mary Beth's gears stencil.

LK Ludwig got me started on this process and I am playing with the possibilities almost every day. Painting papers is totally meditative to me and there is no stress about "getting it right".

 Love those "It is what it is!" activities!!
