Journal Page Front 2015

Happy New Year!
My first project for the new year.
Altered Pages is partnering with DecoArts this month!!
 
I wanted to share with you their Metallic Luster products.
I'm starting a prayer journal for 2015.
While thinking about wanting to draw closer to God, I was thinking about how I want my heart to be like his heart. I want to love others, have compassion, grow closer to Him.
 
I made a 4 layer heart with cardboard. Each layer fourth an inch smaller so they would stack.
Glued them together. Applied texture paste around the edges and on top.
I used a Glitz texture roller on top to create some dimension. Allow to dry overnight.
Painted the whole thing brown.
Painted a coat of DecoArt White Antiquing cream.
Once dry, you take a damp rag and wipe off as much as you want-leaving
behind the white in the crevices.
Now time for the fun & transformation!!
using a soft rag (I have cut up tshirts) you rub on the wax.
I started with some red, then brown & topped it with some gold.
Using DecoArts lacy doily and some gesso, I did some stenciling around the page.
 I cut slits in the designer paper to make room for the heart to nestle inside. Even rubbed a little white antiquing cream on the edges of the paper!
 I layered flowers (using my finger I hit the edges in some gesso to tone them down) around the heart.
 I added foam numbers and outlined them with a black Faber castle pen. Added some corner stickers.
 I wound the fiber around the flowers to indicate how my heart and God's are going to mingle together!!


 Here's a peek at the depth of God's heart! His heart is HUGE! His love for us is HUGE!
