Guest Post for Sticky Journals: Marly Martinez



Guest Post:  Marly Martinez

I sent out 5 packets of stickers to 5 different artists and throughout the summer I will share with you what they have created.  The first guest artist is Marly Martinez and her blog is called The Letter M:  Decollecting all of my Art Supplies.  Here is what she has to say about the Sticky Journal challenge.

"I was lucky enough to get to Marcia before all the spots for her Sticky Journals summer feature were gone. She sent me a ton of pretty stickers to play with and after staring at them for about an hour, I was ready to admit defeat.

I always let the aspiration of making something 'good' get in the way of having fun. Inspiration? Check. Art supplies? Check. Sitting down to make something? Check....absolutely terrified? Double check!

Well, enough of that. I jumped in and here is the first of hopefully many. Thank you so much to Marcia for sending the lovely stickers. I'm currently planning what to send back. It's half the fun!

Messy desk, hand carved stamp, stickers, paint markers, black pens and water soluble crayons.

I really like how Marly used the stickers in the center and then created a mandala shape around it!  Great idea.  Thanks for playing, Marly.


Best wishes, Marcia

I like it too. I've never really gone out and bought stickers. I'll have to try that sometime. She did a great job. Thanks for sharing.

I love the Mandala idea and to incorporate stickers that way.

Marcia, I've linked to you in my most recent blog post since I added a sticker, inspired by you!
