On this one, I was playing around with Liquitex acrylic inks. I love the vibrancy of the colors!
I don't love these two. I just couldn't figure them out, and I kept adding more stuff trying to fix it and it just kept getting worse. Oh well...
I like the way these two go together with all the blues.
And some of my favorites are for upcoming months - I can't wait until it's time to add the Bible verses to these.
As you can tell, I'm working in the book both vertically and horizontally. I decided not to limit myself on the direction and I'm so glad. It's given me more options and I think the vertical pages are some of the best.
I've had this tulip forever. I cut it out of a magazine, and it was twice as long as this. So that I could use it here, I cut it in half and just used the leaves as a background for the flower part. I just LOVE the way both of those pages turned out! Pretty and simple - hmmmm... Maybe that's a lesson I should pay attention to in the future.
On the writing side of this spread, I'm not finished. I need to figure out something to put on that page that will give me enough un-busy space to write on.
That's it - that's the last page I've done so far. I LOVE that leopard print. It's from a small paper sack that I couldn't bring myself to throw away. Can you say hoarder?
Anyway, I'm having so much more fun with this. As I work on the pages, I'm also working on the memorization part of this project.
I'm thinking I should get another 4" x 6" note card spiral and use that as my art journal. It's much less intimidating than trying to tackle the full-sized, hardback book I've been trying to work in. Since I've never done it before, I think this may be a much better way to start. They are small and quick. Almost instant gratification - and I LOVE that!
