An Attitude of Gratitude #27

Three more days and counting on "An Attitude of Gratitude". Today we have "Travel" as our theme and to use an art medium rarely used. I used chalks on versamark for the map and ticket on my page.




I made it all brown (Frayed burlap Distress Stain base) to look like an old document. I made an ATC aswell as I tested out the technique first (it was what I had intended on day 25 for the sea but had forgotten the chalks altogether so I guess they count as a medium rarely used.)


The clay paint spiced the brown up a bit along with the black dotty doodling. Still debating my lamp stamp to go with the scripture, but maybe not....

The page looks great. I'm really impressed that you have done a page a day and are up to date.

Hi BJ,

This page is great! I like the burlap distress stain. I guess the spiced brown is the orange color - that really pops nicely.

I'm impressed that you've been keeping up with the Daily Gratitude journal - that's a committment!

Hugs,
Kay

Another awesome page, my friend! Love the antique-y, distressed feel of this and you've really gotten hold of the theme for today! Love it! Off to create mine....after a long day of taking my parents to their dr. appts.
