October week 5: Sanctuary

The last of my October ReWind posts for Take Me Deeper is Sanctuary from May.

I used Ranger Transparent Gloss Texture paste through a  stencil.  I love this new-to-me product because when it is dry it looks like how heat embossing with clear powder looks but without the hassle of the powder - which gets everywhere!

While it was drying I watched a new Dyan Reaveley video from Ranger where she demonstrated how to ink a page properly.  So I tried it - although I still didn't get as much ink sprayed on to the page as she said.

I pressed the left hand page onto the wet page and got this result.   This is how I know there wasn't as much ink as in Dyan's video because she had ink pouring out of her journal.

Anyway I rather liked the result so I left it alone - apart from drying the page.   Then I wrote out some of the verses from the month long study prompts.

Sometimes you do pages you really like and sometimes you do pages that look really ugly.  I'm glad to say I think this one looks 'real purty'!

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I love the effect using paste through the stencil Bernice, l should use mine more. It always amazes me how much ink Diane uses, keep trying and make sure you have a good stock of ink as you'll need it! Lol

  2. I think that you used just the right amount! I love your page, it is beautiful!

  3. I love the background! Beautifully done.

  4. This is so pretty and I love both pages together, highlighting each other.

  5. I love it -- just the way it is. The complement of the page on the left to the page on the right is fabulous. Going to have to get me some of that Transparent Gloss Texture to try. Thank you for sharing your pages with us.

  6. I agree - the colours you have used are beautiful and the overall effect is very pleasing on the eye. I really like the pattern you have achieved with the texture paste too.
