DIY Texture Tool

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have many old credit-type plastic cards.  One use for these handy little things is to cut the edges up to create textures on your art journal pages.  Here’s how:

Each edge is cut differently, giving you 4 options per card.  I have several of these.  I used a decorative edged scissors for one edge, a hole punch for another, and cut patterns with my scissors on the other two.

If you use modeling paste while art journaling, this will give you some really interesting textures on your page.  This gives you added variety, rather than only using your stencils with the paste.

You can make unlimited patterns which makes this a frugal, handy item to add to your art journal tool kit.
