The theme for week 4 of Take Me Deeper is Transform Faithfully. I like to read the devotion and then start on the background of my page. It may take a day or two do produce as I do a bit and then walk away for a bit - or several hours - and come back and do a bit more.
On this double page I put a variety of washi tape.
Then I put some gesso over the top leaving the marks in it for extra texture.
I rubbed two Distress Ink pads over the dry gesso.
And then tried to blend the colours with a wet wipe. However that mostly took the colour off because of the gesso underneath.
I put some colour on and didn't try to blend it.
Yet again at this point I wasn't very impressed but battled on adding colour through stencils. I kept with the three colours of Distress Ink.
Then I stamped the butterflies randomly on the page.
My usual problem is that having made a background, I like it too much to put anything on top. However since I still wasn't enamoured it was much easier to draw the boxes and put a thin coat of gesso over the spaces inside. I stuck some sticker letters down.
This verse had stood out in my reading - mostly because it was mentioned by the guest preacher at church on Sunday.
I added my journaling.
Thanks for stopping by.
