The theme for week 3 of Take Me Deeper has been about submission and although I had done the background of the pages in my journal quite early on, it has taken all week to submit to the journaling.
Firstly I tore up some pieces from an old map and stuck them to the page and covered them with a thin layer of gesso.
Then I dry brushed two colours of acrylic paint over it. I added some copper coloured paint when the blue and green had dried.
Using two colours of Distress ink I stencilled on the top using 3 different stencils.
I drew the journaling boxes and put a thin coat of gesso so I would be able to write on top.
I stamped the letters with Ranger Archival Ink and coloured them in with a black Glaze pen. This photo shows just one coat of the Glaze.
If you allow the Glaze to dry you can do another coat on top. This actually has 3 coats. I had wanted to use my turquoise Glaze pen but it had dried up! When you put 3 coats on like this, it looks as though you have enamelled it.
I drew round the black Glaze with a white pen and added some white elsewhere on the page. I wrote my journaling. I printed out the verse, cut it up and edged it with Distress Ink before sticking it down.
Onwards to week 4! See you next week.
Thanks for stopping by.
