Our theme this week, because it is the fifth Sunday of the month, is FIVE, and we invite you to make a project that shows your take on fives. My take on fives was five little words! Faith, Hope, Charity, Love, and Peace. So I made a pretty art journal page with those words in mind! Here you go ...
|Five Little Words ... Faith, Hope, Charity, Love and Peace|
The journal is the large Dyan Reaveley 'Dylusions' Art Journal. The pages that I used were actually some that I had gessoed and done some pastel flowers on back last summer. So I took some 'sand dune' colored paint and lightly painted over it. Then I added layers and layers of different colors of paint and stencils and such ... most of which you can't even see any more ... but isn't that the point of this kind of thing? ;)
|Some of the doodling was done with the black 'superfine' pitt pen, others with some multi colored 'Spica' markers.|
The blue sky is painted in 'morning blue' paint with a little water and a little glazing medium, and painted really lightly. Next, I used a piece of punchinella (sp?) or the mylar ribbon that is what is left after sequins are punched out of it. and stenciled on some 'blue bird' paint with some 'sapphire metallic' paint mixed in for the dotty look. The sun ... well, the sun was made by taking a ketchup cup from Hardee's. It is one of the old white paper ones that, if you unroll the edge, and spread it out, it becomes a pretty round shape with creases. I simply painted it with some yellow paint and pressed it onto the page.

The flowers and leaves are actually cut from Gelli prints that I did on deli paper ... or a paper that looks like waxed paper without the wax. It has a clear, almost transparent feel that works great with a decoupage medim ... I used Collage Pauge in Matte for this one. I used some My Minds Eye 'tiny type' small adhesive letters, plus the word sticker for 'love'.

So there it is ... my last project for Anything But A Card. Bittersweet, but the right thing to do! I hope you will go and visit the ABAC blog and make your own project based on the word FIVE! And come back soon for something fun! Blessings,
