The theme for April at **Art*Journal*Journey* is Geometric shapes. What a cool theme and so easy to incorporate in our projects. Here is my project for today:
I am going through Psalms in my Journaling Bible, and I messed up a few pages and skipped them. I am going back and fixing them now that I have some white gesso - lol.
I printed out some of the scripture on rice paper (experiment) and the did a layer of clear gesso over it. It did not smear like some other ones I printed, but I think that was a light hand that saved me. I printed the words out because I wanted to be able to cover the words with the cross but didn't want to actually cover words in the actual scripture part of my page. Then I just started painting crosses and stenciling circles. I added in a little bit of a music sheet, stenciled be humble and added in some Ephemera (TH).
This Psalm is a warning to everyone to be humble, not trust in your riches, and to avoid destructive behavior (gossip, plotting against others, lying, etc.). Instead we should be humble, sharing, build up others, and put our trust in God; stay faithful to God.
My concept is that the butterfly is Christ who transformed us with the cross and and He is saying to us I love you but be humble.
I feel like this is a message God is giving us right now.
I also wanted to share a scrapbook page I finished yesterday.
Thanks for visiting. Hugz and be well.
