Hello, Get Messy Thursday! I am excited to be posting again after a little lull the past couple weeks. Life has been busy but exciting as there are some changes that are coming to this blog, but for right now they are all still behind the scenes. With my new adventure that is bible journaling, I have been listening to art journaling podcasts, using new supplies and trying techniques that I had never even dreamed of before!
This first page is one that came up by accident. I was trying to get a technique figured out where you mix stamps and spray inks with water to make them spread. I kind of feel like it symbolizes some kind of renewed love for this craft, since it goes from the dark colors to the yellow. I was getting kind of bogged down by posting about my art every week, but now I already have some pages that are ready to go so that I am prepared as the holidays get closer.
For the second page, I used the Tim Holtz Inks to stamp a circle in three different colors around the page. Then I sprayed water on the whole page and then dryed it with a hair dryer. I
might have not been wasn’t patient enough and stamped the “cherish each day” stamp a little too early because it turned out a bit unreadable. OH WELL, the background is the bomb.
Finally, I used a stencil to pattern the background in three different colors and then I used the stencil alpha by Dear Lizzy to write the word ‘joy’. I spritz the whole thing down to get the color to spread a little. I finished it up by handwriting one of my favorite verses. I totally love how this one turned out.
