Fabric Art Journal Insert and Stencils with Cristin

Hello everyone!

Currently, a year long journaling/tarot class called Pull Pen Paint is well underway! I'm excited to be one of the guest teachers - but also excited to be a student as well.

I wanted to create a fun insert in my journal. This particular journal is a little strange -  I made it myself and added in elastic so I could have a "travelers journal" feel to go along with it. 

Today, I'm making a fabric insert using ink sprays and Artistcellar stencils!

Artistcellar Stencils used:
I started with a piece of canvas and laid the stencils down in the design I wanted. Then, I used ink sprays through the stencil.
Next, I used some wax linen thread on one of the outer edges, just for a little extra ooomph. To finish, I cut it down to size, and slipped it into my journal!
From here, I can put a little gesso on the inside of the fabric insert, and I can paint on it later - if I want to! I kinda like the inky, grungy design there already. I really LOVE the extra texture of fabric in my journal, and since it's only added through the elastic, I can switch it out as my mood sees fit.
