I did a little bible journaling last night and with Easter soon upon us, I used my Sweet ‘n Sassy set called Jesus Paid It All. I really wanted to try acrylic paints so I chose some “sunrise” colors to create my background. Many thanks to my friend Lisa at The Craft Shack for helping me out with some colors I didn’t have! She also has a quatrefoil stencil that I used a bit on the page.
Oh, and Lisa also helped me out with a few scraps of patterned paper when I decided to do a few mixed media layers on the “grass” at the bottom. I think I owe her a card! lol.
I scraped the paints on thin so the words can still be read. Before I began this page, I had mostly planned it in my head…and I was concerned that I would mess up while stamping the solid crosses in a dark color. So my solution was to stamp them on acetate with Stazon ink and washi tape it in place as a sort of “tip in”. It can be flipped to read the words underneath (bonus!).
Hope it inspires you to get creative! Have a great weekend!
