I'm participating in An Attitude go Gratitude 2013 this year over the month of November. This is hosted by Bernice Hopper. The challenge for the next couple of days will be to use one of the Ranger Distress techniques. Bernice has posted videos of a whole pot full of them.
I watched every one of the videos and it was really hard to decide which one to use first. I love the idea that Bernice has come up with using the same type of technique over several days. I settled on the Making a Scene technique.
I began by cutting down a piece of watercolor paper to fit my journal page and then started by swiping the distress ink pads across the paper. Then I sponged and swiped different inks using a torn piece of paper as a mask. I stamped the bare tree using Rich Cocoa ink.
I printed out the verse and quote. I cut out the word of the day and tore around the verse and quote then inked all edges. After fixing them to the page I wrote my journaling.
I'm very happy with the way this turned out. I'm always amazed at the effects you can get with distress ink. I guess I'm grateful to be able to buy and create with these products.
Thanks for stopping by.
