Design Team Choice with Jennifer

Hello Scrapbook Circle friends! It’s my turn to share my Design Team Choice layout for April, and this month I am doing something a little different.

Some time ago I purchased a journaling bible and had yet to do anything with it. I love all of the beautiful flowers and golds in the April Our Story kit and knew exactly how I needed to use them . . . in my journaling bible!

To begin this page, I used acrylic paints and spread them onto the page beginning at the outer edge and working my way inward. The colors seemed a bit too bright so I ended up using white gesso to tone them down. The verse I chose is Psalm 46:10, which is so appropriate for me right now and my busy life. It is important for me to remember to just be still, relax, and trust that everything will work itself out.

Once the paint and gesso had dried, I began the layering by using part of the packaging from the Pretty Little Studio With All My Heart Collection by Claudia van Rooijen. Next, I used die cuts from Pink Paislee’s Oh My Heart by Paige Evans and the gold-mirrored embellishments by Pinkfresh Studio.

My final step was to add the Pinkfresh Studio puffy letters, Illustrated Faith washi tape and number stickers, and the date using a roller stamp. One piece of advice I have is to be sure to glue everything in place. My letters wanted to peel off after everything had dried, so I did go back and adhere everything with Mono glue.
