Anything But...II Chrissi Mannix

 Hello Lovelies

So I've been in a bit of a creative funk lately. When that happens, I find it helps to some times, just play in my junk journal. Junk Journals are good for this purpose, in the sense that, it's not an entirely blank page you are starting with, and I find this really helps.


I like to start by grabbing some supplies, and just not thinking about it too much. I don't always end up with something I love, or even something I like, But the process gets my hands in the art supplies.


In this case I grabbed some of the older Artist Inks- I recently found these when reorganizing my supplies. I wanted to use them up, and they were a great size to dip a paint brush into. Just by dipping my brush and adding it to the paper, my background came together quite easily.

One of my go to supplies for backgrounds is mark making stamps. It is easy to effortlessly add some interest to your background with some stamps.
Then all that is left is to add a focal image or a quote of some kind to complete the page. I love the Bee Arty quote stencils for this exact purpose. 
Its a great activity to help get the mojo flowing and get your hands messy- something that always makes me feel better. 

I hope you have enjoyed this simple project, and it inspires you to do some mindful creating when you're in a creative funk. 
Happy Creating
