Documented Faith Romans 8:38,39
I did not have intentions on writing a blog for this entry in my Bible but after I got it done I thought maybe you would all like a little information on how I did it. With that being said I do not have pictures of my progress, sorry.
If you are not familiar with a gelli plate or how to use it there are many informative videos on you tube, be aware it is a addictive process before you know it you will have a table full of papers laying around.( who am I kidding they will be all over the room) I applied some paint to my gelli plate and added some stencils and took the first print off on a piece of deli paper, then the second print was applied to the edge of my Bible page. I did my journaling on my Bible page and added a couple rub ons. Then I edged my verse with a water color pencil. I applied some washi tape on the top and bottom of my Bible page. I taped my deli paper down on a piece of cardstock so I could run it through the printer. I found some subway art of my verse on Paper Craft Memories Word ARt by Karen. Thank you Karen, I just love it. I put some of the same washi tape on the two edges of my deli paper and then I used my very thin red liner tape to add my word art print to my Bible.
I love that this was our verse for our prompt for Documented Faith this week. I remember a long time ago when I first read this verse how it spoke to me and still does each time I re-read it. The love that God has for us is unconditional and that just blows my mind. I certainly am not deserving of it but am very thankful for it. I can only begin to comprehend that kind of love, I feel as a mom somewhat of how it might be but even at that there are times as a parent we get discouraged. I think about all the times I am sure that God has been discouraged with me and it breaks my heart that I let him down. I think each time I read this verse it is an incentive for me to keep trying to grow and become a more mature christian. These online Bible studies with the art incorporated in with the study is surely a positive influence on my time with God. I have spent more time reading the Bible and praying over the word then I have in a very long time. I have become more structured and for me that is not an easy thing. I rebel against structure.

Hope to see you there and I am anxious to see how you interpret God's word into Bible Art.
