Gratitude Journal: Day 9

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 Generosity.

Today's art challenge was to use one of the techniques adding texture to the page.

I watched the video about bubbling the gesso and tried it with a cheap gesso.  I didn't really feel I got much of a result.

So I tried it with a better quality gesso on the page for tomorrow.

I sprayed two colours of Dylusions inks.

And smoothed it out with a dry paper towel.  I didn't use a wet wipe as that would have wiped the ink straight off.

I left it to dry and the gesso absorbed some of the colour so that it was more pastel which I like.  I used Distress Ink through a stencil.  I added the verse and the quote.  I stamped the title with my Dylusions alphabet stamps.

I journaled along the edges of the page.

Thanks for stopping by.
