Trust in the Lord

It's been a while since I created a page in my journal but I must get back into the routine of doing something.  I'm entering it into the challenges at

Addicted to Stamps #121  anything goes

Word Art Wednesday #158  anything goes

613 Avenue Create #97  anything goes

Crafty Sentiment Designs  anything goes

This is a lucky dip of everything!  I got my file of bits and pieces of papers and, with my eyes closed, I opened it at random.  The poly wallet contained these lilac papers from Papermania.  I don't think that I'll ever use this stack up, I'm sure it must photocopy itself when I'm in bed lol  After I had attached the papers to the page I used a Tanda Stamp of a double running stitch over the joins using Memento ink.  next I routed around in my box of clear stamps, again with my eyes shut, and retrieved this set of Hero Arts stamps which I stamped with a brown Memento pad for a softer look.  I then coloured it with my ProMarkers and then cut it out leaving a small white border.  Using Letratac dry adhesive I attached the flower and stem on an angle on the page.  My next stage was to repeat the feel and choose method as before with my sentiments stamps.  I thought that the sentiment was perfect for the layout that I had created without sight for the choice of papers and elements.  I had trusted in the Lord for this one and he guided my hand perfectly.  The stamp is an Ippity stamp by Unity and, again, I used a brown ink pad. After cutting the sentiment to size I used a Fiskars 3 in 1 punch, Heritage, to trim the corners.  I created the journal with my Bind-it-All
