Yes it is that time again for the next instalment of The Craft Barn's EPIC Alpha Challenge. This time we have the letter "G" and for my special day I have chosen Good Friday - easy peasy.
So why reinvent the wheel when you can just improve on it I say! I was so taken by the Dyan Reaveley Patchwork Background technique as found through my 12 months challenge blog that I used that again for this page.
Thought the black would reflect the sadness of the day but the bright colours would show what was to come through the risen Messiah.
To make the page you start off by taking a pen for a walk, then you fill in the sections with patterns. I used a permanent pen this time as my coloured pens are watercolours, got caught out on my first page! I even got out a magazine with a feature on zentangle to help here.
You place a mask on one side of the page and dab black paint around it.
Then you colour in the respective patterns the same colours.
You outline the shape and the lines in black plus the shape in white and add white writing round the black side. Most enjoyable.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.
