An Attitude of Gratitude - Day 12

Today's challenge was to use one of the resist techniques.  While I liked the techniques and plan to try them that were provided on the webpage, I looked for other on YouTube and found this one:

I liked this and decided that I would try it.

I used one of the few embossing folders I have for my Cuttlebug which is a swirled pattern a lot like the one in the video.

 I decided to put this on a tag rather than the page in my journal.  I ironed the wax paper and my tag and the pattern stood out pretty well even before inking.

I inked the tag with Dylusion inks.  It was subtle but very pretty.  A darker color would have probably brought out the design better but I was satisfied with what I had.

I painted the background of the page with acrylic paints and a wash of watered down gesso then a quick spritz of white spray ink..

I think the overall effect of the pages with the tag turned out nicely.

Thanks. for stopping by.
