An A to Z of Me #26 - Zeal

Z is for Zeal.

It finally came, the last day of our A to Z Challenge. Thank you Benice for all prompts and videos and showing us your pages too. It has been wonderful. We get to sum up tomorrow and show our covers too, looking forward to that.

Today we were tasked to do some "drippage" which fortunately I had tried out on the "R" tag page previously. Today's page was somewhat more tricky as it was the inside of the back cover! So I cling-filmed and taped up the rest of the album and got to work.

My first attempt with the turquoise was more of a splodge than drippage. So I tried some more colours and ended up with a rainbow effect. As the scripture was about singing to the Lord, I added some music score stamping and some diecut notes.

My letters were all from stock and I chose different textures for each; fabric, acetate, cork and sprayed card. I sat them on little clouds of dots. Amazing how white dots add to a page (I added some to my "X" page too and it looks better now).
