Identity: in Christ

After the introductory talk, In Christ is the first of six talks on Identity.

As before, I answered some of the questions in my notebook.



In my art journal I wanted to do something about being wrapped in a cloak as though wrapped around by Christ.  But I couldn't think how to do that and I don't draw people in my art journals!

It came to me that I could use the same sack images from the Crisis page but have them black - filled with the rubbish from my old life and put them at the foot of the cross.  I drew this out in pencil on the next page in the journal.

I coloured in with water soluble coloured pencils and went over the colouring with a water brush.  I used a silver pen to write the words on the sacks.  I wrote the word forgiven with a black pen and drew round the letters with the silver pen.  As I was using the silver pen I realised I was wrapping the word. So without thinking about it I had managed to wrap Jesus round my life after all.

I drew the dashed line in turquoise aound the page.  Here are the two pages togther.

Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I decided to create my pages before I look at yours, unless I need more inspiration after listening to Ron's impressions. We seem to have some similar 'issues'...such as :hiding, and owning the authority and power that is ours when we pray! So happy that I have found your blog!! I hope to share more as we go on. Blessings to you, Jackie
