Consider . . .

I've really enjoyed learning different Bible Journaling techniques from Rebekah Jones' blog.  Today's artwork is an insert page for my Bible sparked by her post here.  To read about it's meaning, check my post on my Cher-ing Daily Bread blog, here.  

Here's how I made it.  I started with a pearlescent and translucent sheet of paper.  After cutting the paper to size, I stamped the images with green StazOn ink, combining stamps from several HOTP sets (Wild Flowers, Botanicals, Sweet Blossoms, and Sweet Tweets) and embossing them with clear embossing powder.

Using some colored Bic permanent markers, and a Spectrum Noir pen, I colored in the images.  I added a tiny gold sticker for the hummingbird's eye.  Next, I stamped the word "CONSIDER" using alphabet stamps & VersaMark ink - then heat embossed with gold powder.

The next step was to spray the whole with some Glimmer Mist (sea glass color).  After spraying the whole, I dried it with my heat tool and then left it with a book on top of it to start to flatten in (since it kept wanting to curl).

Finally, I inserted it into my Bible using zips adhesive.
