Art Journal Pages, GPP Street Team

More Portion Control!

More pages that use portion control – don’t know what I am talking about see this post  or check out the GPP Street Team Blog.


After painting the background for this journal page – I stencilled portions of the patterns onto the page. Once dry I could ad images and my journaling. The journaling is done with a white gel pen – I love how the writing appears to float above the background.


For the next page I used a large flower stencil – that I have had for ages but never used. The flower on the right is the stencilled one. The flower on the left is a monoprint from the stencil.


With the collage added.


I write a lot in my journal pages – that’s just me I guess – I’m a writer and I have a lot to say. For this page I tried to write in a more expressive open script and limit how much I wrote – exercising portion control with my writing. I think it worked.

  1. waaaaaaaaa! megan, great pages! i especially love the stencil and monoprint and the writing around the edges, and of course the hands overtop. thanks for sharing your continued practice of portion control 🙂

  2. Thanks so much for visiting my blog – I love this journal page and your use of the white ink – looks ethereal and ghostly.

  3. Hi Megan,
    those pages look terrific! Those hands in the second page seem to pop out and the pages look mysterious. Great you used that big flower! I Guess most of us have lots of supplies we never use…..

  4. I LIKE these. I tend to write a lot too so am always interested to see how it all comes together & still makes an interesting page. Great job.

  5. Very pretty with the butterfly in the hands. I had to smile when you mention how much you write on your pages. I just posted where I talked about doing the opposite. I usually find it extremely hard to write on my art. (I’m still terribly repressed about altering books. LOL).

  6. Hi Megan… awesome pages, love the hands on top of your example of portion control! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, and especially for taking the time to leave such a kind comment. All my best, Kathy.

  7. I want to click all those pages and have a closer look, bigger view. Especially on the last one with the hands where you did portion writing – I think that is awesome!

    Happy day crusader!
