I painted these two pages of my scripture journal with a light wash of violet and added a border of green.
Then I took two of the smaller grape leaves and Mod Podged them to the upper left and lower right of the two page spread. I didn't dry them or press them. I just smeared Mod Podge on the bottom and then a generous layer over the top. I wondered what would happen. I figured I was sealing out the air, so maybe they would stay green. Actually, I didn't completely cover the back of the leaves with Mod Podge, so maybe some oxygen pockets remained there. In any case, they turned brown in spots, but I think they still look cool. Don't know if they'll change any further.
I'm going to take my time deciding what to write on these pages. I may also go back and twiddle around some more with some of the other pages. I want to come up with some more creative ideas. Anyway, enjoying this journal journey!
