I am still working in Lamentations in my Bible Journaling.
The MIX challenge on SCS this past week was to use some "garbage" in your creation and the **Art Journal*Journey* theme is "The Meaning Of" so how did I get here?
*Saw Lydia said use some garbage on your creation and I had a 401K disclosure on my kitchen counter that had a great gears picture with some super colors that looked kind of good for a verse on gold.
*Lydia did some textured stenciling and my words talked about tarnishing so I thought it would be good to use my Stamperia pipes stencil and use some rusty looking paste (plus I remembered Elizabeth's rust pages HERE).
*So I used some gesso to glue down the page from the disclosure, tore off a few words from it as well and put them down.
*Then did the layer of textured paste.
*After it dried, I rubbed on some gold paint since the verse is about tarnished gold.I focused on Lamentations 4:1 which speaks about the tarnished gold from the temple. I read several commentaries on this and my favorite view was how the look of the gold in the temple may be tarnished but the properties remain unchanged - our hearts and relationship with Christ are the temple and we have the chance to renew it if we focus on God and get things straight, and then it can be beautiful again. So this is the meaning of my page and how it fits Tracey's journal prompt.
The video link to the tutorial I watched is HERE. I love my bottom cardinal but the top one got me so it got to have the DRS Designs sentiment fall over it - lol. Also linking this snowy wreath to the Try It on Tuesday Winter Wonderland challenge.
