Psalms 8 & 9 (BAJ)

Hello friends.

Don't you love when you find something that jumpstarts your MOJO?

I found a great new challenge called **ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY*  The challenge is all about art journals and there are so many very cool styles represented by the participants.  I tried to look at every entry but there were a lot of them and I missed a few.  Amazing stuff.  This month's challenge is to use something new.

I receive a wonderful new Journaling Bible from hubby at Christmas.  It is called the Illustrating Bible.  It is spiral bound so it lays flat, but the pages are LARGE and it has so much more room for journaling, coloring, drawing, etc.  I LOVE IT!

I journaled Psalms 7 and 8 on this page and used some new to me stamps from CTMH.
I also used some Dina Wakely Scribbly Birds and an old SU! leaf stamp.

First I stamped hte flower, leaves, and birds, and then I watercolored the bg and the images.  I added some stenciling in TH Distress Ink.

I journaled some of the scriptures in the middle and then I wrote all the scripture from the page on the edges and around in the images.

These Psalms are so beautiful. They recognize the magnificence of God and detail David's wonder that God created us, cares about us, and puts us in a position of authority and responsibility on the Earth.  They praise God and thank Him for His protection and blessings.

Thanks for visiting!  I really appreciate your time.
