Hebrews 4:12

For the Word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Bible Art inks

With my Bible Art,I have tried a multitude of inks (because I own a lot)
SU, CTMH, StazOn, Palette, Fun Stampers Journey, Memento, Versa, Ranger, and they all bleed thru in varying degrees. I don't mind the bleed through. 
I have 2 Bibles for Art, in case I want to create on the backside of an already inked page.
Here is a great post regarding the subject of inks. Illustrated Faith HERE

Bible Art ~ Hope in the Lord

Psalm 31:24

24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.

I stamped with Fun Stampers Journey Black licorice ink, and use 2 purple shades Prismacolor pencils. I just color the center, and outer petals using strokes, not a circular pattern.
This is Gamsol. It has a spongy top. You will invert the bottle for the sponge to get moist. Press the "blending stump" onto the moist spongy top.
Then using strokes from the center out, and blend. Then go to end of petals with long strokes, and blend. I get my Gamsol from Inky Antics

This is the flower after using Gamsol.
Stamp set is "Full Bloom" from Fun Stampers Journey. It was the May Kit of the Month and will be available for purchase Sept 1st.. "Where Flowers Bloom..." is part of this stamp set. The other lettering, I used stickers, lightly adhered to my page, then traced around with a Micron pen. Gently peeled away stickers and colored in.

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!
