The Lord's Prayer

Matthew 6:9-13King James Version (KJV)

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Jesus said "Follow Me"

The 1st 2 pages of Mark, Jesus says, "Follow Me"

I used the Arrows from "Hello Amazing" stamp set (SS-0206) to point to the verses.

"Follow" was stamped with "Artphabet" stamp set (SS-0004) using Black Licorice ink, colored with Prismacolor pencils, & and softened with Gamsol. I chose not to color the letters completely.

I also created a coordinating book mark using Fun Stampers Journey Neutrals, and Going Places printed paper, Journey twine, and ribbon from my stash. The "Jesus" stamp set will be available in a few weeks..

Bible Art Class

Laura Kelley's Bible

I attended Laura Kelley's Bible Art Journaling class yesterday. She had just returned from a trip to Africa. You can read about her Swaziland visit on her  BLOG HERE. She always donates her class fees. The monies raised from this class will provide sewing machines for the women to make these gorgeous bags, which can be purchased at Timbali Crafts.

She begins the class with a prayer, and shares her story of  Bible Journaling. Somehow, with 5 kids, she finds time EVERY day to open her BIBLE.

She opens pages of her Bible, and explains how she did the artwork, and shares what message she received.

This week, I will be sharing my attempts at Bible Art.
I will use my stamps, because that is my comfort zone,
AND.... I have a LOT of stamps!
