Never Give Up

I had every intension
of making another card, but when I saw this quote by Winston Churchill as this weeks free word art at the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #38, I knew I just had to do a journal page with it.


My page started with
a torn sheet of Webster's Pages Yacht Club paper. I added color to the edges with Reeves water soluble wax crayons in Yellow, Sahara Yellow and Violet blending with a damp brush and my finger. Now a coat of white wash (watered down Liquitex Titanium White acrylic). Using the Mini Chicken Wire stencil from Crafter's Workshop, I dabbed on some Dusty Concord Distress Ink. Applied a bit of Wild Honey DI with a stamp from Stampers Anonymous Bitty Grunge set, and Black Soot DI sponged around the edges. Doodled over the rope with my Faber-Castell Black Pitt Pen. Finished up with lots of soft charcoal.
Never Never Never Give Up...
a good quote for all of us to remember when things get tough. I need this page handy to look at every now and then along with this verse...
 II Timothy 4:7
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 
Thank you Karen, for the reminder.
