Coming this Summer: Sticky Journals.. YOUR help needed!

Do you use stickers in your art journal?

I love stickers.
Fun labels make me happy.
I love patterned, colorful tape. 
Do you?


I have noticed that almost every art journal page I've made lately has included stickers, tape or labels in some way.

Coming this summer.... Sticky Journals art challenge!
Throughout the summer months, I will share with you each week journal pages that have sticky materials in them.  I will show you some homemade stickers, how to use stickers in artistic ways, doodling on top of stickers and more.  (this is totally free, not a paid class.. simply a casual blog series)

Materials for the Sticky Challenge:
  • colorful tape
  • labels
  • stickers
  • sticky borders
  • your journal
There will be weekly link-ups for you to add your sticky art journal pages!

I figured a blog series challenge would keep me focused and might create some excitement for the summer months!  Plus, stickers are so much fun.  When I was a kid, I even started a club called "Sticker Maniacs".  That didn't last very long, because the other members weren't as enthusiastic as I was.

Here is where I need your help:
I would like to include guest journalers in this series.  If you keep an art journal (or want to start) and you like stickers, then YOU are the person I'm looking for.

What I will do:  I will send you a small packet of random stickers (free of charge).  I have border stickers, labels, cute stickers, letter stickers, more cute stickers...  All you have to do is use a few of these stickers in an art journal page (or ATC.. or whatever) in a creative way.  Then, you will send me a photo (or write a blog post) and a few sentences about this artwork.  I will include your photo and description in a blog post for this Sticky Journals series (plus a shout out to your blog, of course).  The rest of the stickers are yours to keep.  Would you like to do this?  If so, send your email address and blog address to marciadotcom@yahoo.com.  I will send out 5 packets of fun stickers.

Childish?  A little.
Fun?  Absolutely!

This sounds like great fun! I love stickers but never thought to use them in this way :) I wish I had my sticker collection from childhood- I loved the gel ones.

I wish I had read this earlier. It looks like a super fun project! And it's always amazing to see what different artists can do with very similar materials
