A Bible Journaling Page with Umbrellas

The new DRS Designs Bible Journaling stamps are super great and help to make your pages look awecome.  I used the new Strength and Dignity Greeting on this Bible Journaling card. 

I lead a Bible Journaling class at my church and last month we made wedding dresses out of doilies. They loved them! So for the next class we are gong to make dresses out of umbrellas.  I used the DRS Designs Umbrella image to make this dress.  I stamped the image 9 times and shaded them using a sponge and some Tim Holtz distress inks.  I then layered up the umbrellas cutting sections off the top umbrella layers and using them to expand the bottom layers.  I sponged on a bit more ink and then added a few starfish from the 4-in-1 seashells image.  I then added a little gold lace to the top and sprayed the whole dress with some Fireworks spray.  For the base layer, I stamped the main greeting and then sponged around a chicken wire stencil.  It needed some more texture so I added some modeling paste on the stencil too.  To finish it off, I flicked some water colors in light brown and green. 

I attached my card to my Bible page with some washi tape.  I plan to write prayers on the other side.

My inspiration for this Bible Journaling card came from A Vintage Journey and their Sew Special Challenge.  This challenge and site are all about vintage, shabby chic, and mixed media creations.  I just found it, and I love it.  

Many hugz!

  1. Oh how utterly wonderful and creative! I love that this is a flip fold and doesn't cover the scripture - makes me want to rethink Bible Journaling!!! How fun that you teach this as a class group! Love it! I bet they learn so much from you, if turning umbrellas into dresses is any indication of the ideas you share! ;0 Hugs, Autumn
