Guest DT & A Sneak!

Oooh, today is a great day! Not only am I the guest designer for July at Christian Paper Crafts (CPC), I also get to share a sneak of one of the pieces I have created for them! This month's theme is 'Vintage and Retro'. There are such a fun variety of projects in the gallery which will be revealed on July 15th! You won't want to miss it but you can see more sneaks by looking here! They are amazing!

Most of you remember I started with CPC on the design team when the site first started back in 2009. God called me away from that design team but has blessed me by bringing me back to guest design. The site is FULL of amazing Christian women that lift you up in prayer, that listen to your struggles, AND that share their love for the Lord through their designs.

Well, my sneak is of my new notebook for my Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) notes. This year we will be studying the Book of Acts which was the book we studied in 1997 when I first started BSF and came to Christ. I am so excited. Anyway, I chose colors that I guess can look retro but also decided to approach this as an art journaling project! My cover is made out of off-white canvas from fabric.com. I painted it and used both ODBD and Unity stamps. This is very different from how I usually create my notebooks but I must say this was the most fun! I finished the canvas with Krylon Matte Finish so that it holds up through the years.





Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 3 and Cross of Christ, Unity Just my Type
Stamp Ink: Archival jet black
Paint: Adirondack Paint Dabber pitch black and raspberry
Stencils: Delta daisies
Other Products: Liquitex gesso, Dr. Ph Martin's India Inks, Pilot permaball pen, flip flop, sewing machine

So, I hope you will join us on CPC! Come say hello and fellowship with some amazing, Christian women! Thanks for letting me share! Blessings,

Looking good Patter. Congratulations on being a guest designer for CPC. I never thought about using fabric to cover a journal and then stamping. You always have great ideas. ~ Abby

Thanks for sharing your BSF project. This has reminded me I need to make a new one for this year. Acts is going to be an exciting study.
I just love your work and the new art journaling projects are fantastic.
