For my Art Journal this week, I used Deuteronomy 31:8 . In times of trouble it is very hard to remember that God goes before us. Since I have had a year of trouble, divorce and financial, this scripture really hits home.
This weeks journal isn't that impressive or as nice as I wanted it, but when your son tells you, he is going to a weekend wrestling tournament, at the last minute, you are usually rushed. I had to get my art journal done rather quickly, with no time to redo if I made a mistake.
The joy of art journaling is anything goes, there is no correct way or proper medium which you have to use. So for today's post I painted my background using Create a Shade Pearl paint and Smoothie reinker from CTMH. The pearl paint gives the page a nice soft shimmer, then I just started experimenting, I took white glue and drew my flowers on the page, then dropped Heavenly Blue reinker onto the glue and used a paint brush to mix in the colors, this gave my flowers a watery look. While i was mixing the glue, I realized that I was loosing my glue outline so out came my stardust and Gunmetal stickles to trace the outline. I used the gunmetal only because I had run out of stardust on the first flower. I them let this all dry over night and the next day I added my scripture Deuteronomy 31:8 using Staz-On Jet Black ink, and my journaling using a black marker.
Sorry for the poor picture quality, I had to use my phone camera because the batteries were dead on my regular camera.
