Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Deuteronomy 6 / A Bible Art Journaling Page Tutorial

BAJ/DEUT6/Sue Carroll

I recently posted a DOODLE 101 on Deuteronomy 6.  You can find it here.

There is nothing more important to me than to know my kids love the Lord and believe He is who He says He is, will do what He says He will do, and that THEY are WHO God says they are…not what the world says they are. For them to know WHOSE they are, they must be taught truth, but just as important as that, we must show them the Love of Christ daily.  When “we talk, walk, lie down, rise up…”

As a part of the Body of Christ it is also my responsibility to shepherd any children in my care…for each one is precious in His sight.

I love the picture of “writing God’s word on our doorposts.” That all who enter will hear of His love and truth….for this is life. I’m thinking through how I might do that, as we are in the process of building a new house!

First, I applied the clear photo sticker to the page.  I printed a photo of my granddaughter that I had previously made into an art piece using the Avery clear full sheet label below.Screen Shot 2015-06-18 at 8.11.43 AM

Next, I used VersaMark and a Tim Holtz stencil.  Placing the stencil on the page, I  “inked up” the whole area with the VersaMark.

Next, I used a dime store make-up sponge to apply the Pan Pastel over the entire page.

The VersaMark “grabs” the color in the areas that were stenciled.

Because it is a pastel, it is important to “seal” it so that the powder doesn’t continue to rub off on the rest of your Bible pages.

You can use Workable Fixative for this or some people use hairspray. I haven’t tried this in my Bible, but have used hairspray to set pastel in my art journals.

Once I was finished with the background, I added lettering.
