A Beautiful Story: Mixed Media Art Journal Layout

A Beautiful Story…

Today is Good Friday, the day that we celebrate Christ’s death on the cross.

The beautiful part of the story is that He didn’t stay dead. He rose again and lives in heaven. He is there, waiting for us to accept His gift of eternal life. And it is available to ALL, we just have to accept it. Have you?

Creating The Journal Layout

This was another one of those layouts that started off as a background that I didn’t particularly like. I tried everything and it still wasn’t coming together. After putting it aside and making a few other  pages I came back to this. I added a bit more color in the background and somehow that pulled it together for me. The stamps are PaperArtsy and the saying is something I found on Pinterest. The flower and die cut were in my stash.

Just another layout in my mermaid journal. I like this image as the mermaid is sitting on a rock looking at a ship in the distance.

    Have a truly memorable Easter and am glad you pointed out how to enjoy the true meaning of the day and the weekend.

  • Beautiful pages! The layers and colours, as always, are stunning and I love the scale-like green embossing that you added, it’s so sparkly – perfect 😀. Thanks for sharing the meaning of Easter and the beauty of the story – wishing you and your family a very Happy Easter! J 😊 x

  • Gorgeous spread Kate. Love the fish scale looking design. I know it’s not fish scales but love the look. You always make such beautiful spreads. I hope you have a wonderful and. Blessed Easter also. Hugs Erika

  • Another beautiful spread, Kate! Beautiful design, reminds me of a deep sea scene, because of the colours, the “scales”and the fish.

    • Kate, I just wanted you to know, that even though I have not commented on every post, I have read them. And of all the mermaid/ocean posts I do believe this is my favorite, both for the design and the message. Thank you for bringing artful joy to us all!

  • Kate, it overwhelms me every time I think of Jesus dying and suffering on that Cross for MY SINS. What an incredible gift God has given us ALL! Jesus IS my Savior, and He is ALIVE!
    What an amazing mermaid journal page! I love the wavy background; I really feel as if I’m in the depth’s of the sea. And the vignette you’ve created with the mermaid image is the best! Happy Easter! Hugs!
