I hope you are having a wonderful week!
Last week was so unusually busy for me, plus dealing with allergies & asthma, that it took me awhile to complete my first journal entry for my Lent studies. I have made it the highest priority to do the study part each day but when you are out & about, it doesn’t leave much time for creating. Add to the fun, I’m doing 2 Lent studies. I’ll be digging into God’s Word a lot the next few weeks.
Return to me is based on Joel 2:12-13. In Hebrew teshuvah means “to turn back toward”, “repent”, “return to me”.
I created a watercolor wash background over my page, pulled some elements from my Open Journey Come With Me 2 kit, created a pocket with the main image, added the focal verse with the basic Hebrew definition & added the title. I then made a tag booklet insert & added some thoughts from Ingrid’s post & my own study to make it more personal.
I’m having a blast digging into some of my handmade papers, fibers, ribbons, stamps & more to create more interest & texture. It’s been awhile since I’ve done collage style, mixed media art.
Remember to spread some cheer, sunshine & kindness where every you go and pray for our chaotic world.
