(2020 c059) Mixed Media Faith Journal
Photo below: Back & front of cover after adding grosgrain ribbon and stitching inside pages to spine, I added beads to the tail of the heavy thread.
I made this 4 x 4.5 inch little Faith Journal cover following the video on April 28 on Gel Plate Jennifer Chamberlain on her Facebook site: The Maker Beehive on The Artists Unlimited page, she has lots of info and mixed media tutorials. I subscribe to her Creative Sisterhood which has many more instructional videos (She will have openings for new subscriptions again in the fall). I used the Gel Press 5×7 from Hobby Lobby.
The inside pages below were mostly made with stencils Cas-ual Fridays Starlequin Stencil , TCW202 Stencil Harlequin from The Crafters Workshop and Dylusions by Ranger Triangles – Large Stencil (Which appears to be discontinued, but you can see other stencils they carry) , Kiwi Perfect Pearls Mist , Ranger Dylusion Shimmer Spray Pure Sunshine , and Distress Inks by Ranger .
Stamps used were old stamps from Divinity Designs previously called Our Daily Bread.
Dies from Little B (Faith & Hope), Prayers by Simon Says Stamp & Hero Arts , Love Stamp & Cut by Hero Arts were used to cut the Large words. They were cut from HP Photo Paper that was smushed onto craft mat that was sprinkled with Orange or Aquamarine Ken Oliver Color Burst (Watercolor Pigment Powder) and spritzed with water.
You can see the inside pages that will hopefully be a reminder of God’s love to the recipien.
