Take Me Deeper: Transform Submissively

The theme for week 3 of Take Me Deeper has been about submission and although I had done the background of the pages in my journal quite early on, it has taken all week to submit to the journaling.

Firstly I tore up some pieces from an old map and stuck them to the page and covered them with a thin layer of gesso.

Then I dry brushed two colours of acrylic paint over it.  I added some copper coloured paint when the blue and green had dried.

Using two colours of  Distress ink I stencilled on the top  using 3 different stencils.

I drew the journaling boxes and put a thin coat of gesso so I would be able to write on top.

I stamped the letters with Ranger Archival Ink and coloured them in with a black Glaze pen.  This photo shows just one coat of the Glaze.

If you allow the Glaze to dry you can do another coat on top.  This actually has 3 coats.  I had wanted to use my turquoise Glaze pen but it had dried up!  When you put 3 coats on like this, it looks as though you have enamelled it.

I drew round the black Glaze with a white pen and added some white elsewhere on the page. I wrote my journaling.  I printed out the verse, cut it up and edged it with Distress Ink before sticking it down.

Onwards to week 4!  See you next week.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Bernice- this is beautiful. I haven't tried the glaze pen before I'll have to try that. I love the colors. Do you need to put a sealer on the distress inks or would they smudge? Thanks

  2. Just stopped by to refresh myself on the magazine transfer technique we did back in the Attitude of Gratitude journals a couple years ago! Happy to read about the new Christian group you've begun!
    I LOVE this journal page on submission! One topic we don't hear nearly enough about as it is integral to every part of Christianity!


I would love you to leave me an encouraging comment. Don't forget to put your name. I love to know who is commenting. Thank you.
