For 21 days in May I am running an art challenge blog called The Art of Practising Gratitude. Today's post is here. On my blog I am showing what I did in response to the blog post.
Today's art challenge is to dry emboss without using a die cutting machine like a Big Shot or a Cuttlebug. I used a piece of ordinary copy paper and sprayed some water on it. I used a brayer rather than a rolling pin to apply pressure to the embossing folder.
This was the result.
I tried it again without wetting the paper and as you can see with the lower image it wasn't as good an emboss. I used the Distress Inks to colour the paper.
I cut my image down and stuck it into my book.
I used the bit I had cut off to decorate the other page. I stamped the words and glued the Bible verse onto the page.
I wrote my journaling around the one page. It looks very pale so I may come back to colour it later.
Thanks for stopping by.
