I decided to do an art journal page using nautical images as metaphors for Jesus. I wanted plenty of texture to replicate stormy seas so I started by scraping my home made texture paste (pva glue, white acrylic paint and talc) over the lower two thirds of the page, then pressing a swirl embossing folder into the paste. This gave really lovely texture and I think the swirls are sort of wave like! Then came lots of layers of paint, torn strips of paper, stenciling and stamping. I embossed four tags with the swirls embossing folder and coloured in different ways. I journaled on the backs. They slot in behind the red and yellow strips which are glued on three sides so the tags can be removed for reading. This challenge turned out to be a lot of fun!
