    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • pencil
    • 3/4" flat brush
    • cosmetic sponge
    • plain white copy paper
    • permanent marker
    • journal


    1. Saturate a 3/4" flat brush in water and paint the journal cover with all colors: Hansa Yellow Medium, Primary Magenta, Cerulean Blue, and Dioxazine Purple. Do not rinse the brush between colors; this will help the colors blend together.
    2. Mix all of the colors with equal parts Titanium White. Use the eraser end of a pencil and add dots throughout using the pastel colors.
    3. Use a black permanent marker to free-hand the words "My Imagination Journal" on a piece of white paper and tear. Use a 3/4" flat brush to adhere with Matte Medium. (Refer to photo for placement.)
    4. Set the Americana Radical Rays Stencil in place. (Refer to photo for placement.) Use a cosmetic sponge to dab Carbon Black on the stencil. Use a cosmetic sponge to randomly smudge Carbon Black in other areas.
