Prayer Journal Page

I enjoyed creating a prayer journal, this project is meant to take awhile to finish.  I will add to this as I add to the journal, I will add my thoughts , Bible scriptures and prayers.  This journal is 6 X 9 with a 3" spine. On the inside there are 3 sections. each section is placed on to the spine with a ribbon, Each section can be removed for the ease of working  on a page,

The front of journal. The paper line is Quick Quotes "Serenade"

I used The beautiful Serenade paper on the inside cover decorating  the page with beautiful coral lace which created a pocket with a photo mate. On the next page I used spays to create the look of the page then stamped a sentiment  with a appliqué butterfly

Double Cards I used four paper lines.

Double cards I used most scraps from the four collections.  Red White Blue, Serenade, Adventure Awaits and Whistling Dixie. This is a fun and easy way to make a card and use up the scraps that are always left behind. after making a larger project.

Both cards the outside edge of the card was distressed with 2017 Royal Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink as well as the center circles and the edge of the border punch.

Altered Anchor

Hello crafty friends. I took a wooden anchor, and started to alter it by adding layers of multi-media products and paper, Then one all dry I started to add the embellishments.

The wooded anchor has a layer of gesso, and scraps of paper from Anchors Aweigh was randomly paced on the frame with a thin layer of Mod Podge, Once the aper was dries the paper was trimmed around the anchor then lightly sanded.I painted a layer of white wash over selected areas of the anchor.Then I mixed up wall compound and stencil paste together to place in the to several stencils strategically placed

Hand made flower using basic rose from heart felt creations. 

Petaloo flowers added to the center bottom of the anchor and a flourish stencil was added to the right side. I have 3 charms hanging down the center of the anchor.
