Sticker Tutorial: Layering Circles

Yay!  I'm so glad a few people are playing along with me for my Sticky Journals challenge.  What is sticky journals?  Basically I am using up my stash of stickers and patterned tape this summer in my art journals.  Along the way, I am showing you some tutorials, prompts and artwork.  If you want to play along, great!  If not, that's ok too.  I'm just having fun with my art journals.   The linkup for the first week is here.

 Today, I'm go to show you how I layered circle stickers.

1.  First, I started by using patterned tape as a border.  The green tape was quite thick, so I ripped it down the middle to make it thinner.  Then, I used these fun gold seals that I found at an Office Max store.

2.  Next, I stuck white circle stickers on top. The dashed borders were already there. 

3.  Then, I added cute circle stickers from the Jonathan Adler - Sticker & Label Book.  I also found other circle stickers, stars and "o's" to put on the page.  

4.  Finally, I added a whole lot of doodling with various markers.  I added color around the stickers and on top of some of them.   I like to use Sakura Gelly Roll  Moonlight Gel Ink Pen Set and Sanford Sharpie Extra-Fine Pastel Paint Pens. 

I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial!
