Glimpses of Jesus in the Old Testament is a year long bible study written by Simon Clay of Jubilee Church Solihull. You can join in at any time.
Today's study is about Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3. The part that stood out to me and inspired my journal page was later in the story in Genesis 15:5
He took him outside and said, “Look up at the sky and count the stars - if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”
I thought of the numerous stars in the sky - too many to count - and that one special star that led to the stable when Jesus was born. And that led to this page.
I put a thin coat of gesso on the page and then used a snowflake stencil for the large star and a star stencil for the other stars. I used Transparent Texture Paste through the stencil.
I put a thin layer of acrylic paint over the page and you can see the texture of the kitchen paper where I dabbed it off. I wiped someo f the paint off the stars.
I put another coat of acrylic paint over the page.
I used some white acrylic paint through the stencil to make the large star show up. It's not as neat as I would have liked it to have been. The paste had spread under the stencil. Then I wrote around the edge of the page.
You can join in with the Bible study without doing a creative response. I do hope you will join me.
Thanks for stopping by.
