Here is the second bonus lesson this week by the fabulous Andrea Gomoll. I loved creating this lesson as it was so relaxing just creating background pages and turning them into affirmation cards. I probably went a little overboard with my pages as I ended up with 30 cards! Oh well as I figure it, I will have one card for every day for some of the months. I'm sure I will be adding to my deck in future.
I created the background of my cards using a watercolour wash with Paper Artsy Infusions and Perfect Pearls sprinkled on top. The Infusions are lovely and produce a quick, colourful background.
This is Golden Sands Infusions. I created two background pages on 200g/m2 watercolour paper and glued them together which gave me a wonderful sturdy card.
This is Sunset Beach Infusions. I created my own collage background paper by printing Psalm 139 onto paper stained with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. On my scraps I used a sheet music stamp for some variety.
This is A Bit Jaded Infusions. All of the affirmations on my cards are based on truths contained in the Bible.
I embossed all the edges of my cards with gold embossing powder. Now you can't tell I have adhered two pieces of paper together.
All thirty of my cards. I'm looking forward to creating more colours and affirmations. The Bible has a treasure trove of them.
I am thinking that these could make a lovely gift.
I wanted to display some of my cards on a page for my Life Book. So I created another background page using Blackcurrant Infusions. I adhered a piece of Tyvek to the back of my paper for strength and then cut slits for a sampling of my cards.
Here is my finished page with cards inserted.
I punched holes before I made my slits to prevent tearing.
I absolutely loved creating this project for it's ease and practicality. I am going to shuffle my deck and pull out a card each day to remind me of God's truth about me, meditate on associated verses and apply it to my life.
