Practising Gratitude day 5: Be kind

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.

Today's art challenge is to use Distress Inks.  I tried the various suggestions from the video.  These two tags were pressed into the inks on the mat to build up layers.

The tag on the left was crumpled up and I used 2 colours of ink.  It still looks crumpled but I can assure you that I ironed it.  I stamped over the top using Distress Ink rather than Archival.  For the tag on the right I used 3 colours of Distress Ink and then lightly misted the stamp with water before stamping so that it has more of a watercolour look.

This is my page for today.

I used the Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to add some colour at the bottom of the page and used a stencil for the shapes.

I added some extra stencilling and stamped be kind.  I cut down the stamped image and stuck it to my page.  I cut up the Bible verse and inked the edges before sticking them down.

I added my journaling along the spine edge of the page.

Thanks for stopping by.
