Supplies Needed:

  • One sheet of 12x12 or 8 1/2 x 11 White cardstock
  • Chanukah Stickers (Stickers used here are by Frances Meyer, Inc. # R 2110-141)
  • Blue Fine Tip pen
  • Pencil and Eraser
  • Wavy Ruler
  • 2 Cotton Balls
  • Light Blue and Light Green Chalk or Ink Pads
  • Scratch paper to place under your punches and page for applying chalk or ink.
  1. Take your pencil and the wavy ruler and draw a wavy line on all four sides of the cardstock about " in from outer edge of cardstock. (I do opposites sides of the page first, then line up the ruler on the remaining two sides to get an even looking corner at each end. Slide the ruler to get the desired corner.)
  2. Next take your stickers and place on the pencil drawn line around the edges of your page. I started by placing the "Happy Chanukah".
  3. Next, line up your wavy ruler so that the wave of the ruler is lined up on the inner side of the drawn wave. Take the cotton ball that was rubbed into the blue or green chalk and rub from the ruler edge lined up on the drawn wave to the outer edge of the page, blending the blue and green into each color as you start and end each one to give a soft color change effect. (Make sure you have newspaper or something under your page so not to get ink on your work surface.)
  4. Last take your Blue Fine Tip Pen and Journal "Happy Chanukah" between the stickers. Place dots (you can use a broad tip for dots) along the wave where you did not journal. Erase any lines showing.
  5. Your page is now ready for pictures and journaling. (Mat pictures using a color close to the pen you used on the border.)
