This verse has come up several times in my life.
Psalm 56:8 (CEV)
You have kept record
of my days of wandering.
You have stored my tears
in your bottle
and counted each of them.
It was prayed over me at a meeting of regional leaders.
And I have used it at various times in art work that I have done. This was part of a workshop that I did at the Festival of Quilts at the NEC some years ago.
This scrapbook layout was done whilst I was a member of Scrapbooking From the Inside Out.
I really like hidden journaling and this was hidden under the torn papers.
And this my most recent version of the verse using acrylic paint in my art journal. I wrote with a waterproof pen my feelings about a life event. I scraped a thin layer of modelling paste through a stencil. Because I don't clean my stencils the pink ink I had used previously spread onto the teardrops. I used a thin layer of blue acrylic paint over the whole page painting round the teardrops. I added another layer of modelling paste and dry brushed the butterscotch acrylic paint over the top. I used a Thermofax screen and black and white paint to add the grasses. I printed the verse and coloured the paper with Distress Inks before cutting the words up and gluing them to the page.
This journal page has been chosen for inclusion in a book provisionally called Art Journal Kickstarter to be published at the end of the year.
Do you have a particular Bible verse that crops up on a regular basis?
See you soon
