Siesta Sister Memory Team Paper Art Tag
I'm memorizing scripture this year with Beth Moore over at Living Proof Ministries every two weeks. I decided this week I would choose a longer section of scripture and then break it into smaller chunks so when a couple of months passes, I have a whole scripture passage memorized. They may not be complete sentences, but they will be by the end!
I started my tag with Distress Inks by Tim Holtz. Then I added modeling paste to make the swirl.
I discovered just recently that there was a product to spray on these stencils so that they stay put! Stencil Adehesive!! Just spray a light coat on the back of your stencil and smooth it down over your surface. What a difference this makes! No more colors seeping in under the edges!!
When my paste was dry I laid the stencil back over the paste so I could sponge some ink over the top.
Then I had these flowers laying around that I had made for a different project, but went a different direction. They are just book pages I ran through the Sizzix and then colored with some spray ink and Distress inks. The flower was a little too close in color to the tag color, so I took a white paint pen to a few places on the tips, as well as some bronze Stickles to define the edges a bit.
I added my scripture part and DONE!
When I am done, my whole scripture passage will be Ephesians 3:14-21!
