One Minute Journal Page Video

While i was at Create Retreat in Costa Mesa, CA this past May, Jenn Mason filmed this for the "Mixed Media in Minutes" series at Cloth Paper Scissors.  Jenn is doing some greound breaking projects over at CPS, this being one of them FREE technique videos!

My instruction was to make a journal page in one minute, yes, 60 seconds!!  Have you ever had a conversation with me?  Am i capable of talking for only ONE minute??  Daunting, i know, but i was up for the challenge.  I decided to color up a page spread with some Crafter's Workshop stencils and my spray inks.  Many of you know this technique your sleep, but it's a great for newbies.  It's basic, effective, colorful and doable in a New York minute!  
 This is one of my favorite journal pages and i have posted it before.  These backgrounds were spritzed in minutes.  I then had a beautiful surface to fill with journaling with my Signo white pen.  Simple, simple, but so lovely.  There you have your Mixed Media in Minutes, enjoy!
