Inspired by Michelle Ward: CJS 2018

I'm sharing a quick look at my art journal pages inspired by Michelle Ward's lesson at Creative Jumpstart. If you haven't signed up yet, be sure to check it out, there is still plenty of time to join in the fun! (link at bottom of page)
I decided to do a page on my love of coffee and some of my favorite coffee houses. I can usually be found crafting with a cup of coffee at my side, always being careful not to dip the brush into the coffee instead of the water!

I used several different stencils from Stencil Girl, Heidi Swap, and The Crafter's Workshop to get the fun mix of designs. 

Coffee browns are compliments of my DecoArt heavy body acrylics - Burnt Umber, Yellow Oxide and Burnt Sienna.

Next I pulled out some coffee cup holders and cut bits out to add, then went around them with a graphite pencil and water brush. 

Final touch - I inserted these coffee cards that I'd been saving. This seemed like the perfect time to use them!

Oh yes, I bet you can tell from this I love my coffee! 
I've enjoyed sharing a bit of inspiration with you, and would love to hear what you think. 


  1. Love what you've done. I hope you also worry about drinking the paint water....I've been close a couple of times ;-)

  2. Thank you for sharing your steps for the project. Another coffee lover here!

  3. Wonderful Journal page that shares the love of coffee - thanks for showing a few steps along the way - it helps those of us fairly new..


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, it is so appreciated, and I love reading each and every one!
