Gratitude Journal: Day 14

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 Life.

Today's art challenge was to use one of the resist techniques.

I tired using an embossing folder  and a plain candle to make a rubbing on the page but it didn't appear to work.  However when I painted a thin wash of acrylic paint over the whole page the wax imprint was there.

I tried again on copy paper with 3 different embossing folders and then sprayed Dylusions inks.

When the papers were dry I tore them up and collaged 3 pieces onto my journal page.

I stamped the hearts in the top right corner.

I then added the verse, the quote and stamped the 3 hearts.

I found these large letters from 2 different sets and inked them with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to make them look more the same.

I stuck the letters down and wrote my journaling in between the quote pieces.

Thanks for stopping by.
