TMD: Shaped by Gratitude week 2

I explained last week how I made the backgrounds for this month's theme.

Here's the page ready.

There was a lot of white near the spine on the right hand page so I used a patterned roller to add the turquoise paint.

I printed out some clipart arrows from the computer, cut them out and drew round them on compressed cellulose sponge.

I dipped the arrows in water so they became thick sponge.

I really liked the quote that Mary used:
“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” ~William Arthur Ward

I put the key words on the page with the arrows to show the turning.

I drew round the words with coloured pens.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I love this Bernice - the sponge arrows work really well!

  2. Beautifully done! Love seeing the steps you did.

  3. Oh I really like this Bernice! Did you use the sponge as a stamp or glue the sponge shape on the page? I really really like that!


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.
