Bible Art Journal Entry: Sweeter Than Honey

How sweet are your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psalm 119:103

This was a sweet (no pun intended), quick little journal entry.  I borrowed a friend's stamp set that had this cute little bee on it (sorry, forgot to write down the name of it) and with the help of a Tim Holtz stencil, created this "honeycomb" look with a couple different colors of distress inks (Mustard Seed and Brushed Corduroy).

May you find the sweetness of God's Word today!

Bible Art Journal Entry: He Is Risen!

I hope you all had a glorious Easter!

This is some Bible art I did a while ago and was saving to share on Easter.

Luke 24 tells of the resurrection of Jesus!  The sun/He is Risen part of this journal entry was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.  Also, I've been wanting to journal the words to Jeremy Camp's song, "Same Power," for some time, so when I saw my inspiration post on Pinterest, I knew the lyrics would go great with this entry!  Luckily I had room on the next page, since it was the last Chapter in the book and there was some room left over.

I used the Tim Holtz "Rays" stencil for the sun along with some Gelatos (love these things).  Paint, stamps and stickers make up the lyrics, "The same power that rose Jesus from the grave lives in us!" 

Romans 8:11
If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.

We will not be overtaken, we will not be overcome!

Bible Art Journal Entry: Let Everything That Has Breath...

Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens!

Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!

Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp!

Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe!

Praise him with sounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing cymbals!

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord! 

Psalm 150

I had a lot of room to express my praise for God through art for this passage.  It's a lovely way to end the book of Psalm!  It's also a lovely way to start and end our days....and all the in-between parts too!

I got to attend a craft day with some ladies last month and had the best time.  One of the gals brought her stash of stamps (and other supplies) to share, and I used her stamps on this page (bird, branch, butterflies, flower, dragonfly, "everything" letters) and forgot to write down the name of the stamp sets, so don't have those listed below with the other supplies.

Get your praise on!
