What's in my home?

First I used a brayer to coat the cover of the journal, ( I didn't want complete coverage, I love the Kraft paper showing through ) next using a stencil with paint, which I then outlined with a pearl paint. The Lord's Prayer was stamped on Kraft paper and then cut out, painted and also outlined with pearl paint.

I think one of my favorite parts on my art journals are the small bull nose clips that I add a cross to. I believe that the small cross embellishment makes a big impact. You might notice a small dot of Helmar 450  Quick Dry Adhesive over the opening of the ring, it helps assure that it won't open and let the cross slide off by accident.

I love the Kraft paper showing through the lovely aqua colour too Sandee.
Your journal is lovely and I am sure it will become more so as you fill it with the prayers that speak to you.
Thank you for joining us at Anything But A Card.

Really like the effect you achieved with your techniques on this one. Has the look of patina'd & weathered wood to me. I love all these different mediums you combined to reach the final project, and great use of the clip to hold your charm. Nifty idea. TFS
