Bookmark Art

As I sit under many blankets plus the weighted blanket, coloring is calling me.

I grabbed some of my bookmarks and gel pens and headed to relax my legs.

It’s another night of my legs feeling swollen and achy. That’s what happens with rheumatoid arthritis and edema.

I must confess, I have been eating too much sugar and not enough fruits. Tomorrow back to my strict eating. (Gluten free dairy free and soy free, eliminate sugar.) And I need to buy melon as it helps to release fluid in my body.

Happy Day

Stencil Journal Art


  • Acrylic paint-need 4 different colors
  • Brushes
  • Paper towels
  • Water
  • Stencils

Select 4 colors of acrylic paint.

Take a medium size brush and dab paint onto the paper. Add a the second color, overlap the colors.

Then add the fourth color. The white of the paper will start to be filled.

Let dry. A blow dryer can help the drying process. Then select a stencil…

I selected flowers to continue my theme.

Take a color, I used black, any color would be sufficient. And paint the stencil shape onto the paper.

Be careful of lifting the stencil off the paper.

Add an affirmation, quote, prayer, song lyric etc to the image.

Happy Day
