"Praise the Lord" Mixed Media Scripture Art Journal Page for Donna Salazar Designs

Hello my dear paper crafting friends. I'm up today on the Donna Salazar Designs blog with another of my mixed media Scripture art journal pages. The background is something near and dear to me. My mom's church was cleaning out a storage closets a few years back, and one of the things they were getting rid of were ancient hymn books - soft covered, yellowed with age, the edges bent and crumbling. My mom, knowing how much I treasure vintage book pages, brought a couple of them to me. I took a few of those treasured old pages and tore them into strips and pieces to create the background for this page. Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Girlie Grunge Art Medium, thinned with water was just perfect to adhere and protect this delicate paper on one of her Denim Art Journal pages. 

Of course I added mixed media textures and color, but allowed plenty of those sweet music notes and bits of hymn verses to show through. You can see more photos and learn all the details HERE.

Here's a sneak peek:

Here are links to previous mixed media Scripture art journal pages I've created:

By the Sea Mixed Media Layout with VIDEO TUTORIAL ~ Scraps of Elegance August Kit


The gorgeous beach themed Scraps of Elegance August "By the Sea" Kit couldn't be more perfect for scrapbooking this sweet beach photo of our nephew. This page will be framed and sent to my husband's brother who is grandpa to this adorable young man. The surf and sea line up perfectly with the photo, and the coral embossing powder is a perfect accent to highlight his ginger hair. In this process video I show how to color the chipboard pieces, add glittery sparkle to the sea, and apply texture around the photo frame.

I hope you enjoy this process video tutorial:

Go Confidently Masculine Mixed Media Card for Donna Salazar Designs

Hello again my sweet crafting friends. It's my turn to be up on the Donna Salazar Designs Blog today with a masculine mixed media card featuring her Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Pigment Powders and Girlie Grunge Art Medium.

Do you ever create a project, and it becomes one of your favorites. That's just how I feel about this card with these gorgeous colors and cool textures. 

Remember those epoxy stickers that fit into bottle caps? You know the ones that are so old that they've turned yellow with age. I was ready to throw some out the other day when I thought I'd see if I could alter them using Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products. I couldn't be happier with the way they turned out. Stop by Donna's blog for more photos and all the details HERE.
