Gratitude Journal: Day 1

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 Permission.

Today's art challenge was to use one of the techniques using something from the Ranger Distress Range.  I chose to use Distress Ink pads.

I used blending tools to put the ink on the page and then rolled it with my brayer.

The kraft paper envelope on the inside cover of my journal made lines as I rolled.  I put a piece of card under my page and rolled again.

I stamped randomly over the page.

Then I used one of the colours I had already used through a stencil to try to bring it altogether. I think I just made it more fussy.

I cut out my quote and verse and inked the edges and stuck them down.  Then I used sticker letters for the theme of the day and wrote my journaling along the acorn border.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Great page!
    I have to work first, so tomorrow playtime!

  2. I love the stamping on this page. Is that a Tim Holtz stamp?

  3. I'd hoped to put my journal together but I am energy-zapped. Feeling gratitude for having a day at home so I can be kind to myself and do very little.

  4. Just dropping in to let you know that I appreciate the time and passion you put into your challenges. I am still doing the A to Z one (I am on M) and I have absolutely enjoyed the journey of discovery...both with techniques and in myself. Again, thank you!! I am looking forward to beginning this challenge which may take me into the new year ;)
