The first weekend of this month was spent in the Creative Worship group enjoying the God is Faithful Bible Journaling Retreat. We had a bakers dozen classes over Friday & Saturday. I completed 9, started #10, have 2 to watch & one was delayed because of internet issues. Not bad for 2 days.
Our first class actually started with a Bible tassel or what I refer to as a floof. I dug out some fiber bits & pieces to create mine. After I picked up some lobster claw attachments, I went back & finessed it a bit.
One benefit of the weekend was that I allowed myself to make some quick pages. I don’t often do quick & so it was good to step outside my normal. You may see a few more quick designs in the future.
I did my first page in my new NIV Journal the Word New Testament. It is basically travelers notebook size at 6 7/8 by 3 1/4 inches and the pages are similar to an interleaved Bible with one side of the page being left blank for notes & journaling. The focal verses were 2 Timothy 2:11-13
Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with Him, we will also live with Him; if we endure, we will also reign with Him. If we disown Him, He will also disown us; if we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot disown Himself. NIV
I used a gel plate for the scallop shape with Distress Oxides, added in Sweet ‘n Sassy’s Botanical Branches and a quote Janelle shared with us in our lesson. A bit of gold watercolor accents completed the page.
