Magazine Page Monday!

Here is this week's entry into my ESPN magazine. I love this verse. To start my pages I use gesso, which primes them so the original artwork, articles and text don't show and it gives a great base for my paint to stick to. This week I decided to use some of my homemade sprays on the background. I have ink refills for some dye based ink pads by Stampin' Up. I just added a few drops of color to a spray bottle and then added water. Here is the result after I applied several colors:
It was a little bright so I pounced some of the color off with my towel. Then dried everything with my heat tool. 
I wasn't sure where to go from there, so I painted some flowers and used a Bible quote and some really old Wordsworth stamps! Does anyone remember these? 

I used acrylic craft paints for this whole thing. Then traced around my leaves and stems with a Uniball pen. 

When all that was dry, I flicked the whole page with white paint. 

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!
Hugs, Dawn
