And finally TMD for April

I have finally, FINALLY, caught up with all my missing Take Me Deeper pages.  The first week of April was actually in with the March prompts because of where Easter Sunday fell in the calendar and I blogged about it here.

I started by gathering up all the 6x6" stencils I have that are like sun rays or bursts of water to represent the living water.  Our theme for April was The Resurrection Life.  I did the backgrounds for the pages of all 3 weeks.

On the first page I sprayed through another stencil and then tried out some Ranger Transparent Texture Paste.  It's like heat embossing without the fuss of the powder and the heat gun.  Can you see the flower with the ink showing through?

The stencil I used had freedom in it so I used the Texture paste there and then when it was dry I coloured the word with a black aquarelle pencil.  I used the pencil to write 'a new creation' and then went over it with water.

I drew lines and then wrote verses around each square.

This page became overly fussy once I had sprayed the pomegranate ink through the butterfly stencil.  It certainly isn't a favourite page.

After I stamped the heart I used a wet wipe to wet the ink on the page and spread it inside the heart.  Then I used the aquarelle pencil to write the words.

Thanks for stopping by.
