Believe it or not — the background stencil for the page above was made with coffee!
All you need is a spray bottle, a packet of instant coffee and some water.
And voila…you have beautiful stencil paint. I love the rich brown color it provides, and it’s an easy to travel with this kind of ‘paint’, too.
I learned this trick in a recent workshop I took with Judith Cassel-Mamet, and this little spray bottle has been accompanying me on all of my camping overnights since.

If you’re not a coffee drinker, that’s OK. What goes best with your journal? Hmmm…it may be time to experiment with some other colorful cuisine :)
