Day 3 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.

If you are on Facebook, I have set up An Attitude of Gratitude Journal Challenge group where you can share your thoughts on the daily theme or link your blog or add a photo.
Originally I wasn't going to have a Facebook group but there are a few people who are following along who don't have blogs or Flickr accounts themselves or who are making lists but not doing any art so I thought I would give a forum for that.  The group is open for everyone so do join in.

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

Today's art challenge was to 'draw freehand using any media you own'.

I forgot to photograph what I did as I went along so it will be mostly writing today!

I started by putting some 'clouds' of gel medium on the page ~ which you can't see in the photo and which actually didn't work well because I was rather too sparing with the gel medium.  When it was dry I went over the whole page with Distress Ink.  I started with Tumbled Glass and then added Faded Jeans.

I then started drawing with Inktense Pencils.  Any watercolour pencils will do!  I drew the tree, the grass and the stream and then used a wet brush over all the drawing.

I added a few highlights with a black pen and a white pen.  I stuck on the bible verse and added my journaling.

Remember you can interpret the challenge in any way you choose.  This is just my interpretation. 

Have fun.



  1. Looks great. The blog is so full of inspiration!
