Today was a grumpy day for me!
Maybe grumpy is the wrong word, I was stressed!
Doing this journal page helped refocus me!
When we moved, to our home 8 months ago, the Lord told us that our house would be a
house of Hope!
In the natural things aren't very hopeful and sometimes I find things overwhelming;
today was one of those days!
I was praying the whole time I worked on this page and I could feel some hope rising!
Then I got a not so good phone call...but faith is believing when we don't see, right?
So I will Hope and believe for Hope for each one in my house!
For this page I prepped it with Gesso, then I Mod Podged, bible pages.
Then I smeared a tan color paint, then a light green.
I mixed some bronze paint in with the medium paste, then I used a palette knife and a stencil.
While the medium was still slightly wet I dabbed some blue pearl ex,
I also used my Versa marker in random places and then put on pearl ex.
Pearl Ex needs to be used with something sticky, or it won't stick.
I haven't used my pearl ex in years, I will be using them much more often now; love!
One thing that I learned and won't be doing again is using markers.
I used my SU marker and the spritzer and sprayed the page randomly but
when I put the Mod Podge on, the spritz all smeared and looked dumb!
So then I had to do other things to cover up that, hence the white bubbles!
Does anyone know how to get around this?
