Water

As they rode along they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look! There’s some water! Why can’t I be baptized? He ordered the carriage to stop, and they went into the water, and Philip baptized him. (Acts 8:36, 37 (NLT)

It’s late, and the day was long. I am excited to share what I created based on the theme of water, though.

I worked on this in 15 minute blocks of time in my room. One day my bed won’t be my workspace, but today it was. It was an emotionally challenging day, and I found that the process of tearing paper and arranging and gluing it was grounding.

Today’s page is torn paper collage. I began with the water background. I took a picture at the end of each work session.

 Here I continue to build the water working in a circular direction.

 Finished water. This leaf was my inspiration for the design. I loved the look of it floating on the water. I debated leaving this the finished page. Bur there were these cute underwater animals that looked happy and playful. I decided to add this smiling beluga and smirking seal for fun. I also added a stream of water down the side with the title at the top.

 My daughter added her own touch to my underwater theme and had me laughing hysterically when I discovered it. It was not glued on. I took the picture for fun. I mixed some blue-tinted water with modpodge and coated the picture for effect, inspired by my fish page. I also added silver glitter to the stream of water and the edges of the leaf.

This is the finished work. It is another one that I like better in real life.

Here is what it looks like across from yesterday’s page.

Goodnight, Friends!
