I did three of the four backgrounds for my pages this month a few weeks ago and I blogged about them here.
The theme for this
month is Promises and in particular this week the promises that God has
made us that if we ask for wisdom he will give it to us.
I used the Thermofax screen that was made for my Altered Book class - The Promised Land. This is the palm branch. I had stamped the bell and the pomegranate from the stamp set. Details of the purple and gold are on my previous post.
When I came back to the pages I still thought they were too red so I sprayed the whole page with the Dylusions White Linen Ink.
I have a set of stamps that look like machine stitching so I used three of them to put the border around the page using black Archival ink.
Then I used various letters from my scrapbooking stash to add the verse from James 1. I wrote the verses from Exodus 31 around the inside of the border. "See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills - to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of crafts."
The bells and the pomegranates relate to the robes that were to be made for Aaron's priestly robe described in Exodus 28: "Make pomegranates of blue, purple and scarlet yarn around the hem of the robe, with gold bells between them. The gold bells and the pomegranates are to alternate around the hem of the robe."
Thanks for stopping by.
