Practising Gratitude day 3: Inspire

For 21 days in May I am running an art challenge blog called The Art of Practising Gratitude.  Today's post is here.  On my blog I am showing what I did in response to the blog post.

I put some Distress Ink over this page and it highlighted all the wrinkles from when I altered the book.  I also used some stencils to add pattern.

I watched Kaz's video and then used a new butterfly stencil I had which really didn't suit the tutorial.  I used Amsterdam acrylic paint and did two coats.  I stamped the verb for today: inspire.

Since it wasn't possible to do the colouring the way Kaz had recommended I put the stencil back on the page and went over the white acrylic with the Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and then drew round the butterflies with a black pen.  I added the Bible verse.

I added my journaling around the edge of the pages.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I really enjoyed over painting my stencil images. I used butterfly and flower stencils.
