Day 12 of the 30 Day Craft Challenge and the word for today is
Almost half way through and finding it easy to find inspiration but difficult to find my supplies in all the moving boxes building up in the house.
Today I decided to do a layout, as I had stumbled across this amazing photo I took in India around 3 years ago when I was looking at photos for the Paper Flourish Project 30 Challenge.
The photo was taken (as the writing says if you can read it :)) on an early morning boat ride down the River Ganges in Varanasi. These monks where riding down the river also and joining in a Morning Prayer ceremony, in which you whisper your prayers or wishes to the tiny dish of Marigold petals - light the candle and float it down the river.
I love this photo with its rich oranges and it helps me relive the feeling of spirit I felt constantly throughout my travels in India...certainly a spiritual and sacred place.
In this layout I also tried out a technique I have wanted to try for a while - DIY Rub-ons- I used my inkjet printer and normal transparency sheets with a little dried spray adhesive and printed the text you can see in the above pictures backwards. Then when printed placed the transparency printed side down and rubbed over it with a blunt pencil. Not as sharp as normal rub-ons but still a great technique to try and perfect :) Note: the ink on the transparency will not dry so cant be stored long term.
Now here are a couple of projects from yesterdays word
