Art Journal Challenge: Only one Color

Ok, so only using one color can be a bit daunting right?
I mean most of us love the ooooey gooey lovely colors of our backgrounds.
However, there is something freeing about not having to make all those choices too!
I opted for blue of course, because it's currently my obsession!

I can't think of anything more refreshing than water.
The Living Water of Jesus Christ, and the giving life of water.
I am beyond blessed by my Lord to get to create these pages, and to live in a life of wonder.
Thinking about all the tiny details that go into each of our lives and how 
He took the time to create all of it!

Some process pictures?
I started with distress inks and covered the whole background

Then I splattered some water.  To do this I spray water on my hand until it starts to pool, 
and then I throw it gently at the page. 
I liked how most of it was towards the bottom of the page.
After this I guess I forgot to take any pictured until it was done.
I used scribble sticks to get the section darker, 
and I drew circles for the air bubbles, and then painted them with white acrylic paint.
Finally I did a little outlining with scribble sticks and my fude ball pen.
Lastly I added the verse.  
Like a lot of you I'm not too keen on my own handwriting, but I'm continuing to work on it! 
Hope you are having a blessed day! 
I may get to play some more later as I'm off from work today! 

Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win some Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks!
