I picked up some drafting stencils at a thrift store for a quarter.
This journal page kicked off by moving and filling an ellipse stencil around the page. Clearly not the neatest pen work, but who cares when it will be used very small!
I open my picture of the page in Adobe Capture and experiment with options for patterns. This is the best part…like playing with a kaleidoscope.
I really like this pattern below. Maybe I should get a test swatch printed from Spoonflower.com?
This virtual quilt now exists as a pattern in my Adobe library, and it can be applied to shapes. This globe with the pattern applied was created in Photoshop.
