It is Friday again and today I am here to show you my project for the challenge between myself and BożenA. I chose the theme for this one and with all that the world is going through, I felt a good topic would be “Hope” – what inspires us with hope. I really did not know myself at the time how I was going to depict that.
But then it was soon to be Easter and I made some cards for our congregation. I showed them to you in my post called A card with gold foil
. This got me thinking and that is when I realized what Hope really means to me. The resurrection of Easter morning gives me Hope beyond what I can see in this current world and so my journal page formed.
I worked on a page in my disc bound journal. The paper for this page is Canson C’ a Grain Drawing paper as I wanted to do the background rays showing the rising of the sun in soft pastels. I created a triangular shaped mask out of copy paper to form the rays. Once I had them all completed, I fixed the pastels with a spray fixative.
I cut a piece of black cardstock to fit the bottom of the page and used a Honey Bee stamps die to create the hillside. The cross is also cut out of black cardstock with a different cross from the same Spellbinders set that I used for my cards. With a small circle die, I cut a hole in the cardstock and then cut three circles of the same size out of grey cardstock. I glued these together to make a thicker “stone” and added some shading with alcohol markers. The word “He” is cut from black cardstock with an alphabet die set. I added some gold glitter washi sheet behind the hole for the tomb.
I completed the page by writing the black words with a Glaze pen and the white words with a white gel pen. I have found that the Milky Pop white pens work the best for me.
I look forward to seeing what BożenA has created for the topic and invite you so see her post
