Backgrounds Made Easy!

 I used to be like "stencils are cheating!" pssssh- Stencils are awesome for backgrounds! Go right now to your local arts and crafts store and grab stencils and stamps...fill your pages in your art journal, and then draw, write or paint over it. Leave some of the areas exposed for color and textural differences.  It adds unexpected elements to your page and helps get rid of the 'blank page syndrome'. It's really great on paintings as well...and you don't have to worry about copying, because you are modifying the artwork as well! Get creative- grab your art journal and get creative today!!
