Friends are such an important part of our lives, essential to our well-being bringing us love, fun and wisdom when we need it!
The backround was inspired by Leandra Franich on the PaperArtsy blog. It's made by brayering different PaperArsty Fresco Finish chalk acrylic paints. I guess I should have practised on another page first but I plunged straight in by doing these pages in my Friendship journal:
Then I added some stenciling and stamped a friendship definition stamp all over:
I had to include some hearts and these are stenciled with my home-made texture paste:
And a close up of the pages:
I love the effect the brayered backround gives and I suspect I shall be using it a lot.
Friends are vital to us, but even more important, it is vital for us to be a friend to others. As Jesus said,
This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you.
This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends.
