Counting My Blessings

DRS Designs just came out with some great images designed for Bible Journaling, but they also work really well on cards and other projects.  One of the images is this Open Bible.  Some girls in my Bible Journaling class wanted an open Bible image to be able to write verse references in and  I passed that on to DRS.  This is great image they came up with.  I have used it on a number of Bible Journaling pages, but this weekend I was playing with it at a crop and this card came to mind..


I stamped the image twice and then trimmed around one of them so I could add pages to the Bible and make it look even more like an open Bible.  I used the Script Font Background to do the main panel and to stamp over the open Bible.  I finished off the card with the Count Your Blessings Greeting.

Fun to make and look at.

By the way, I just want to say that I am definitely blessed and have millions of blessings.  Even when life is tough, we have sooooo much.  God is good!

Bible Journaling with the Letter B

Catching up after the computer disaster of 2016!  Yay!

I have been doing a lot of Bible Journaling lately - here are two pages I did this week using DRS Designs images.


I did this top page using the Impossible Faith Greeting and the Big Mouth Bass image.




On this page I used the DRS Designs Hot Air Balloon image. I have used this image on a few pages in my Bible - it works for many differ scriptures and you can color up or decorate the image so many different ways.  I colored the page using water color pencils and a Micron Pen.  I stamped the images in a light ink and went over them with the Micron Pen - that way I don't have any bleed through.  This page is also for the current DRS Designs Challenge which is to use something that starts with a "B" on your creation.  I used balloons and the color blue and I did it on a Bible.

Hugz!

A Lounging Moose!

Hello, my friends.
 
I am sorry I have been missing in action lately.
 
I have been crazy busy (work, family, company) and then my computer died.  Once my computer died, it was all I could do to slip my cards in my DT challenges from my iPhone. I little depression/sadness over my alopecia diagnosis didn't help much either - but I am dealing with it much better now. 
 
It would take awhile to post all my cards over the last month so I am just going to post the one from this weekend's Outlawz challenge.
 

The image is called Lounging Moose and it is from QKR.  The image is actually full body, but since one of the DT members had already used it that way I decided to do a close up of his head.  I water-colored the imaged and then ink distressed the whole card.  QKR has a ton of moose images and all are super fun like this.  They are sponsoring this week's Paper A La Mode (anything goes) challenge at the Outlawz if you want to mosey over and join.

I plan to catch up with everyone this week!
