For my journaling, I use the ESV Psalter Journaling Bible and meditating from Psalms 63. This psalm was written by David when he was in the wilderness of Judah and when he was on a run. He was waiting for God's helps to deliver him from his enemies, hungry and thirsty. David was not only thirsty and hungry physically, but also his soul hungry and thirsty for God's presence in his life. He remembered how God had helped him in the past and had faith that He would help him again.
We often feel in that we are in the middle of the "desert" of our lives, feeling alone, and forgotten. But my friends... have faith and trust in His promises that He won't leave you alone nor forget you. God will not desert His children! When you come to Jesus and drink from His well, you won't be thirsty again and you will be satisfied (John 4:13-15).
I started my page by adding thin layer of clear gesso and dried it. And then I conditioned my page with anti-static powder for heat embossing process.
Next, I stamped some of the cactus images with VersaFine Nocturne Ink Pad, sprinkled them with some clear embossing powder, and heat set the powder with craft heater.
I stamped some of the cactus images on post-it paper, cut them and used them as masks.
I use the masks to stamps more cactus images and heat embossed them, to create a cluster of cactus like in a dessert.
The heat-embossed images will help to not blend the watercolor paints.
I used my Gansai Tambi Watercolor paints and round brushes to color for this step.
I used wet-on-wet blending technique to create the sunset background.
And then I colored the cactus images with the same watercolor paint.
I dried the watercolor paints with craft heater lightly from the back of the Bible page.
Then I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Clair Nocturne, and dried the ink right away.
That's my Bible journaling page to share with you all today. I hope this inspires your to keep creating today!
