New Creation ~ Mixed Media Monday

Hello friends ~  It's time once again for Mixed Media Monday. 

 Today's entry into my Create Happiness Art Journal is fairly CAS.  I cut this large Eyelet Lace Frame from Spellbinders Garden Shutters collection out of a piece of parchment cardstock and stamped some scripty background in very light Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Ink.  I also stamped some vintage postal imagery using clear stamps from Spellbinders Flea Market Finds recent release. 

 The edges of the doily as well as the background of the page in my art journal got a healthy dose of distressing using Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stains.  The berries are clear acetate stickers that I found on Amazon and the oversized butterfly is from a K and Co. collection of die cuts called "Meadow".

I typed the verse from 2 Corinthians 5:17 on my computer and printed it on my home printer.  I cut the sentiment into blocks, in keeping with the other entries in this journal, and outlined them with a thin black marker.

I enjoyed the CAS process of creating this entry, and I'm so thankful for the truth found in these words.    

I'll be adding this page to the Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge

Thanks for stopping by!

Another beauty for your journal Birgit...I can only imagine how lovely this whole journal will be when you're finished! I hope it doesn't go too fast though, as I imagine you're probably having a wonderful time creating each beautiful page! And what a great way to worship our God by paying tribute with so many wonderful verses! Another lovely, lovely page my friend!! Hugs. :0)
