Step by step journal spread

Started with a green background of acrylic craft paint applied with a baby wipe.

Added some borders to the sides with scrapbooking stickers.

Added two types of paper tape to the top and bottom for more borders.

Glued in two cute vintage style images.

Added some small pieces of tape to the corners and some penwork with a couple of paint markers.

Put some more stickers in the corners and the center.

Added more tape for a decorative effect. I love that chevron tape by the way.

Added yet more stickers and some text.

And wouldn't you know it, I finished off with even more stickers, I'm obsessed like that!

Here's some details of the spread.

The stickers come from all over the place.

I have the expensive scrapbook kind, but also the cheap discount store kind.

And toy stores and offices supply stores are good sources too.

It's a lot of fun mixing and (mis)matching them!

Hope you enjoyed this view of my journaling process!

    1. I'm absolutley mad for stickers and pick them up everywhere. I'll look at your blog and see if it's up. Look forward to it.

  5. Love seeing your process, Caatje! And I like how you use stickers with abandon. I have SO many; I need to make better use of them in my own journaling.

    1. This made me smile. I always feel like stickers are a bit of an easy way out, but I do love them so and when you combine different kinds the effect can be a lot of fun.
