I started this journal page Sunday afternoon. It is inspired by the sermon at church Sunday morning that focused on this scripture and on the various "Great Works" we all have going on in our lives. Specifically in Nehemiah the great work was rebuilding wall and that would be why I have a wall on my page. The page already had the blue in the background - I had pressed a stencil (The Crafter's Workshop) on the page to use up the ink left on it after using it to spray through on another project. The brick was made using Wendy Vecchi's brick stencil and her embossing paste. After the paste was dry I used Golden Fluid acrylics to paint over and to add highlights. Next I wanted to add some 'sunshine' to my background without causing the blue ink to bleed and wondered if I might accomplish that by using alcohol inks; so I tried it and it worked - yay!!!! The scripture is hand written with a Pitt pen. The bottom seemed bare and I wanted to put something there so die cut some manila cardstock using a Tim Holtz on-the-edge die and then sprayed it with Dylusions spray and a little bit of Perfect Pearls spray which you probably can't see but I like that it looks like sunshine reflecting. I am now sitting here wondering why I made the wall such a dark color, lol. Oh well, I like the page!!!!
