Day 25 My Attitude of Gratitude Journal

If you want to join in with making an Attitude of Gratitude Journal through the month of November click through to the Challenge blog.

Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt on Creation.

Today's art challenge was to 'use Kaz Hall's Glue Stick Resist technique on your page today'.

Kaz shows this technique on a tag.  I thought I would experiment a little and wasn't at all sure it would work.

First of all I sprayed water over the whole page.  Then I sprayed 3 colours of inks. I sprayed some more water on and moved the paper so the inks would blend. (Photographed whilst wet).

I blotted the wet paper onto the background paper and got some interesting added colours!

I used the glue stick on a sunburst stamp and stamped around the edges.  Then I inked over the whole page with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.   This is the point where I didn't know whether it would work.  I thought maybe as I wiped off the glue residue with a wet wipe it would wipe off the water-based inks but joy of joys, it didn't!

In this photo you can see on the right where I've removed the glue.  The glue is still present on the left.

At the bottom of the page I sprayed yellow ink through a sunburst stencil.

I sprayed the cut up Bible verse with yellow ink before sticking it on the page.  I stamped the sunflowers and then highlighted the petal tips with white pen before outlining the verse and writing my journaling.

I love how this turned out.  Thanks Kaz for the technique.

  4. I so love how this turned out. I can't wait to try it. I gave about three huge bins of stamps away several years ago to a friend and she is letting me stop by today to reclaim some of them...I hope there is a starburst in there...I know there are some sunflowers....can't wait to try this technique. I have been loving all your posts!!!
