JFJ 15 for 30 Challenge - Day 7: Fills

What do we do with our shapes and spaces once we create them? Filling them is just one option. We can simply fill a shape or area with solid color, or we can take things a bit further. We can add some shading to create a sense of depth or three-dimensions. We can use patterns and repeated lines and shapes to create some visual texture. We can even fill our shapes and areas with collage. Filling in these areas is a great way to get our hands moving and doing something in the journal without overthinking what we’re doing.

Take some time today to fill in some areas. Perhaps bring color to words and shapes you have already drawn or stenciled in. Perhaps use metallic markers to create areas of emphasis and surprise. Use patterns or collage to make things a bit more dynamic.

Don’t forget to share! #jfj15for30
