This was a big change from the first circle journal where I was paralysed with fear at creating in someone else's journal! However, I learnt from that experience that the thing to do is not try and create a masterpiece which always ends in disaster but to just go for it and have fun in the usual way. And so I did and ended up so inspired I did a page, a spread and a tag:)
Here is the tag which is my favourite:
The backround was brayered with Cosmic Shimmer paints. I loved it so much I didn't want to cover too much of it so only stamped a crackle all over before adding the heart and the writing. The crackle represents the broken things of the world which cause so much turmoil and the smooth textured heart shows its possible to have peace despite those difficulties. I love the crackle effect:
Here is the spread with one of my very favourite scriptures which has helped and held me through hard times:
I used Cosmic Shimmer paints again, simply sponged, and then added some stamping:
I wanted the journaling flowing across both pages:
I added the texture paste through the stencil and painted over it with pearl Cosmic Shimmer.
I'd like to pray a blessing over all of you reading this too:
PEACE be to you,
and PEACE be your house,
and PEACE be to all that you have.
