Good day! It's a glorious morning here in Arizona.
We are creeping up in temps, but the nights and mornings are still cool and beautiful!
After my morning devotional I raced to the craft room with coffee in hand
(Cause I don't do much til that's done!)
I was excited to pull another prompt, and get back at creating!
As you can see from the title, today is Put a Button on It.
And I immediately started to overthink what a button would do to my journal this early in the game.
I'm picturing the bumps and bruises to future spreads.
I should preface this page with I put gesso on this page last night when I had too much come out of the bottle when I was gessoing some tags.
And as Dina Wakley often says, gesso is like wearing underwear.
So I can't say I'm sad I did.
Anyways, I layered on some scribble sticks, and then moved the pigment around with water.
I flicked some of the Olive stick and the Black stick for some splatter.
Then I had an ah ha moment (Bear with me, it's been a while since I journaled!)
I remembered how to make yummy backgrounds...
So I grabbed some that were laying on the desk and went to town.
Then I grabbed some prints I made with the gel plate yesterday, and hand drew and cut out the hearts.
I'm loving them!
Lastly I worked up the tag. It had also been printed on with the gel plate yesterday (when I made my sister's birthday card.)
I looked about for a sentiment, and settled on this one. It's pretty true as I've only done yoga once, and I'm pretty sure I didn't wear yoga pants that one time!
I hope you are enjoying following along, and remember to leave a comment for a chance to win a set of Scribble Sticks for yourself!
