So, I decided that trying to make enough Gelli Plates for the VBS youth project of making a book was not going to be feasible. I decided instead that we would just use stencils and spray some acrylic paints that I put in little spritzers.
First, I sprayed the paper with water and then with paint.
The last project for the youth will be a version of the Witnessing Bracelet, using more beads and threading them together differently than usual.
I've been working on VBS stuff so much the last couple of weeks that I decided tonight was time for me to do something for me! Selfish, I know! :D
So, I found this journal at the thrift shop sometime last year and just have never done anything with it. But, recently I ran across some Christian graphics by Emily Burger of Emily Burger Designs. I was inspired by her work and decided to use her inspiration to put stuff in this journal.
"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." by Ralph Waldo Emerson. I used an embossing element as a stamp along the right hand side. The diamond shapes were made from a stencil I created, printed and then laid a piece of overhead projector transparency over and cut out by hand! What a royal pain! But, I sure like the stencil! I used a piece of paper towel to shield the quote as I sprayed ink onto the page.
