Psalm 91:4 Find Refuge Under His Wings
I hope all of you are having a great week so far! This year on of my goals is to set aside some time for Bible Art Journaling and this week I finally had a chance to start!
I created a quick "tip-in" using the January 2017 Our Daily Bread Designs Release Find Refuge Bible Journaling stamp along with the ODBD Tag Trio Dies (for the top portion of the design).
I cannot recall where I had seen this idea originally (possibly Pinterest?) but basically you create your journaling page or project (in this case, the size of a large bookmark) a bit larger in width than you wish the final project to be, score along the side and fold the score over the page in your Bible and adhere with washi tape.
I thought I might try this idea so I can use more Mixed Media techniques (heat embossing, wet on wet watercolor, etc.) and not have to worry about wrinkling, tearing or hiding God’s Word. I know I can use clear gesso to prep my page but sometimes I want to have more flexibility and think this tip-in idea will work fabulously!
I am also linking this project to the Word Art Wednesday #266-#267 “Anything Goes”Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the ODBD Blog or the Word Art Wednesday challenge site yet, I would encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this "tip-in" Bible Journaling project:
1). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, ink and stamp the ODBD Find Refuge Bible Journaling stamp with embossing ink, apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
2). Once the embossing powder has cooled, apply distress ink with a water brush (I used purples and blues), layering to increase the intensity of the color and direct to paper for some of the areas. Use a paper towel to gently wipe off the ink from the embossing.
3). Allow your panel to dry, cut to approx. 2 ½” wide, score the one side and die cut just the top portion of the panel with the ODBD Tag Trio Dies.
4). Add the purple satin ribbon with the silver metallic thread through the loop at the top and adhere to your Bible page with washi tape.
This was a very easy project and I loved reflecting on Psalm 91:4 “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.” (NIV) as I created.
I am looking forward to finding more creative worship time this year and I am so thankful that I can find refuge in Christ, my Savior and how He is so Faithful and True!
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by and visit- hugs, and I hope you have a fabulous weekend my friends!
