I haven't been blogging as much as I would like too...I'm going to try to pick it up. :)
Lately..life has been a little rough. There are a lot of outside circumstances that are weighing on my heart, but they aren't things that can be easily fixed and my personality...I'm a fix-it person. I can't stand having to stand back and watch people I love hurting.
So...i decided to pour some of those feelings into an art journal spread.
Sound familiar to your situation?
I have a huge love for vintage music, particularly vintage hymnals, so I started looking through an old one I have and was just reading the lyrics, looking for comfort. I came across the hymn "Blessed Assurance" and the lyrics jumped off the page.
Here is where they led me....
I used acrylic paint and Heidi Swapp Color Shine and stencil to make my background. Then I layered pieces of my hymn and allowed it to speak to me. I highlighted lines that stood out to me with a stabilo pencil.
I used white gesso with a Crafter's Workshop stencil. I love this shape but once I was done, I realized it kind of looked like teeth (weird thought, I know), but then I took a closer look at the left page...
As a Christian, it's because of the Assurnace in Christ that we can break through and be triumphant no matter what the situation.
Here is a closeup of a few other of my favorite places.
Until next time...xoxo.
PS. I made the quote pic using Rhonna Farrer's app, layered over a pic I took and edited with PicFX.
