I started out by writing a Bible verse that I had come across in my Bible Journaling Facebook Group. I really liked it and wanted to incorporate it into my page. This was my "good stuff".
Next I covered the page with white gesso. I glued some punched out flowers and some cut hearts onto the page. Then covered everything with a layer of two colors of acrylic paint in blue and green. I used my fingers to put some random circles of Pink paint on the page and smeared some gesso on random areas to tone down the color. I used my Stabilo pencil to put some random marks on the page as well as outline the flowers. Using a waterbrush I went over the pencil marks. OK now I'm to the "Ugly" stage.
I pressed onward and added some black gesso through a stencil in the corners. Much better. Added more random marks. Glued on a few more flowers and started liking what I was seeing. I printed out the verse and cut it into strips and glued it on the page. I'm calling it done.
Also this week I want to share a picture of my husband, Tom and our granddaughter, Lydia. It was taken on Tom's birthday 2/4/2015. He is wearing his birthday shirt from our son, Joe and daughter-in-law, Lisa. He is THE Grandfather!!. He is also wearing a hat that says "Best Granddad".
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you come back soon.
