Happy 'winter' birthday
I liked the sketch I used for my last card so this one is almost the same but I turned it around for 90 degrees. All the papers are from the Tilly Daydream collection and I used a pen to draw on the 'stitches'. A great birthday card for the colder days :).
Everything in His timing
I'm a little bit impatient sometimes so this message is a great reminder for me. I can spent hours of time on crafting and journaling but for other things, especially the big 'life questions' like 'what about work? Or relationships? What is Gods plan with my life?' I can get really impatient. I want to know what I need to do, and especially when. But there are days that you simply don't know what to do. And than you'll have to wait. And that can be hard. But then this verse reminds me that God hàs a plan and that He will provide and that He will make the way. Even when I don't see what's going to happen. He's already there and He knows what's best. So I'll just have to wait, on His time ;).
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your cares upon Him, for He careth for you.
1 Peter 5:6-721st Century King James Version (KJ21)
For this page I used distress inks and derwent pencils and I made my own triangle stencil with my Silhouette cutting machine.
P.s. Blitsy has a great ZIG calligraphy and ZIG writers sale. I've never used these type of pens but I'm going to try them on my bible journaling soon :). The first are on his way. They say they won't bleed so I'm curious to see what happens. (I do have a Wink of Stella marker from ZIG and that one works great!)
In Dutch there's a song for little kids that says: Fall, Fall, what do you got in store? A pile with hundred thousands of leaves.
Everytime I see this card I have to think about that song. And of playing with the leaves ;). Now that the leaves are falling again I wanted to make some fall cards. The image that I used is one that I had laying around for a long time. But I never came to making a card with it. But now I've got the 'fall-feeling' there might be coming more or these cards.
His word remains
Everything will fade away but His word stays forever. The first part of this message isn't really comforting, but the second part fortunately is. There are a lot of bad things happening in the world these days, and you don't even have to look far away. Even in our own families there's a lot of drama going on. But we have the Word of God and it never fails us. Like it says in Genesis, God only has to speak and it is. Gods words are powerful, more powerful than we can ever imagine. And His words remain. Until our time here is done, we can hold on tight to His word. Because everything that God has said is true, and it's still true for us. That's the message this part of my journaling Bible gives me.
For this page I used colored pencils for the background. I used my micron on some tracing paper (to prevent bleed) and adhered the paper with a glue spray. I wrote the message with pencil first and than traced it with my Micron. But when I erased the pencil lines the words faded a bit as well. It happened the most on the word 'vergaan' which means 'fading' so well, we see that the mistakes are a part of the proccess haha. Later I realised that they didn't call it tracing paper for no reason. Of course... I can first make my message on normal paper and than trace it with my micron onto the tracing paper (I don't have any Deli Paper...). I let the glue and pen dry for a couple of hours before closing my Bible.
Another card for a Winnie and Walter challenge today, this one is made with a sketch they provided. I love working with sketches especially when they give you a new way to use your papers or products.
For this card I've used a layered flower from Crate Paper, sequins and paper from Doodlebug, some scrap papers that I had laying around and a Dutch stamp saying 'congratulations'.
