Another sneak peek of our new HYMN GIRLS: APRIL and one of the words that comes in her 3x4 set that will be in the online store on THURSDAY (along with a lot of new releases!) The word TRIALS is on this set and because it's that wonderful photopolymer material, it can be bent to fit over the top of her umbrella. Yes, Bind and Stitch (our stamp for stitching is also used as you can see above)!
I made the tag and the background paper using cardstock and inking it with dylusions spray inks:

Today I started by adding a layer of white paint to the pages along with a strip of masking tape down the center to keep the spray inks from getting to other pages, then I sprayed a lime green and bluegreen blue dylusions spray ink on watered pages:

Today is a Journaling Day in my art journal! I love to take the truths I'm learning and get them down so I don't forget them! Today I am working with a couple of cross references in one of the bible studies I am in dealing with God as Creator and The Word of God standing forever! You can see all previous Art Journaling your Bible Study posts to the right of this post on the blog!
Above was one finished background and then the one that came from a background I was NOT happy with at several points in its development: First I used stamps from the Inspired Stamps: THANK YOU set
Tomorrow I will have a new page from start to finish for you! With a journaling-focused layout to share!
Leave me a comment and remember...new released stamp sets coming out THURSDAY!! You will love these hymn-focused characters and images!!

Today I have an art journal layout and wanted to show you how to add stitching to different parts of your art journal, only using stamps instead of thread. The Inspired Stamps set BIND AND STITCH is one of the first we ever created and one of the most popular sets because of the different stitching stamps on it. Above you see the zig-zag stitch and I also love to do this stitch around the pages (this photo shows you how I curve the clear photopolymer stitching stamp to stamp around my page corners:
I sprayed water on the pages, then the turquoise dylusions spray and the white. I added water and moved the book to help blend the colors:
I used modeling paste and dylusion stencils to get the stars. Then I let it dry and added my paper pieces/stamps:
I did use some charcoal pencil to give the church some depth. I may go in and make that more defined.
