Heart Take Courage {Art Journal}

DLP and DF May 23 Courage

This week’s Documented Life Project art challenge was to incorporate cheesecloth into an art journal spread. I was not at all happy with my results, and if this had been in a spiral-bound journal, I would have ripped it out and started over. But for the DLP I use the Dylusions (large) hard-bound journal, so I was stuck with it.

I first colored the cheesecloth with Distress Stains (wish I had left it white). I layered a lot of patterned scrapbook paper and used a lot of Distress Stain, letting it drip by spraying with water. I do like the old dictionary page with the definition  of “courage”and “courageous.”

Since I complete 2-3 art journal challenges a week, I have to expect that sometimes I will love my creations, and sometimes not so much.

The COURAGE theme is part of the Documented Faith project for this month. This is one of my favorite Bible verses about courage:

“Be strong and let your heart take courage, All you who hope in the LORD.”
Psalm 31:24 NASB
