Here are the new and previously released items from Our Daily Bread designs, which are featured in my two projects today:
My first project is an 8x8 journal page. The new 'My Shepherd' journaling stamp was stamped on the left side of the panel, colored with markers, then a clear Glaze Pen was used on the sheep so that the sponged clouds wouldn't turn them blue...it was much easier to glaze them rather than mask them. The lamb from 'The Shepherd' was stamped three times using masking, colored parts of them with a blush marker and sponged the grass with green ink before adhering the fence which was cut with the ODBD Custom Fence Die. The cloud background was created by sponging aqua ink over a template cut from the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies set. Some of my fave scriptures were printed from my pc, trimmed by hand, edges sponged, then popped up with foam tape. (Note: for a closer look, click on the photo.) This was very fun to make....I can't wait to create the next page for my scripture journal scrapbook.
My 2nd project is a bookmark. These new stamps were designed with Bible Journaling in mind, but they make the best bookmarks too!!! The white panel was cut out with the largest die in the ODBD Custom Bookmarks Dies set; the outside mat was trimmed by hand on the curved lines and trimmed with a paper cutter on the straight edges. Once 'The Anchor' image was stamped, the rope, anchor, shells, and clouds were colored with markers then coated with a clear Glaze Pen. Once the glaze was dry, I put the panel back into the die, then used sponges to color in the rest....the glaze pen acted as a resist. By putting the white panel back in the die before sponging, the white edge stays protected. I was going to give this to someone at church, but it makes me happy so I think I'll keep this one and make more bookmarks for my church group!

Thanks for hanging out with me and my Sistah Sticks today!
